Domestic Violence Response Enhancement

Warlga Ngurra provides a range of services to assist women and children. The Domestic Violence Enhancement (DVRE) program enhances the services response for women and children who are in unsafe housing, homeless, or at risk of homelessness, as a result of domestic and family violence.

  • Emotional and counselling supports.
  • Practical items such as food, clothing, toiletries, and baby items.
  • Safety planning information.
  • Housing assistance and advocacy.
  • Applying for AVO’s and court support.
  • Access to specialist domestic violence services including counselling, groups, and Victims Services.
  • Assistance with applying for payments.
  • Support services for children.
  • Follow-up support the next day.

Domestic violence is behaviour that’s used to gain or maintain power and control over someone else in a current or former intimate relationship. Family violence refers to violence between family members. It is not just physical abuse. It includes verbal, psychological, sexual, financial, social, spiritual, technology facilitated abuse, stalking and intimidation. We help women and children to feel empowered and build a strong support network to achieve safe and positive lives.

Any organisation can refer women wanting to leave a domestic violence relationship to our service. We also welcome women to call us directly if they would like our assistance.
