Domestic violence

Domestic and family violence are serious crimes and can result in serious injury and death.

If you witness someone being assaulted, threatened or believe this is likely to happen without putting yourself in danger, call the police and report it. If you are not in immediate danger and are worried about someone who is at risk or surviving domestic or family violence there are things you can do to support them:

  • talk to the person
  • ask if they are all right
  • let them know you are worried
  • reassure and redirect them to the services listed below

Before you talk to a person, consider speaking to a professional service or organisation about how best to support someone.
