During the past two decades, there has been an increased community awareness of domestic violence and its significant consequences. Relationships Australia is opposed to the use of violence in relationships and the exploitation or abuse of any person. We support and encourage initiatives that promote human relationships which are based upon respect, dignity and non-violence.
Relationships Australia has a long standing history of commitment to providing services which support people affected by violence. Based on best practice principles and guidelines, programs have been developed for perpetrators of violence, women who have experienced violence and children who have witnessed violence.
Clinical staff in every program are trained about domestic violence to enable appropriate support to occur.
