Countering Violent Extremism Support Services in NSW
Posters providing contact details for domestic violence services
The City with Domestic Violence NSW have produced the attached Feel Safe in Your Own Home poster to inform people where help is available, should they or someone they know need it.
Domestic and family violence is a serious and prevalent problem in Australia. Support is available and it can also be prevented. Covid-19 restrictions have made it more challenging for people who have experienced domestic and family violence at home to access help and support. With restrictions easing more people maybe able to reach out.
Copies of the poster are also attached in Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, Indonesian, Korean, Spanish, Thai, and Russian.
