Imagine feeling so powerless that you are unable to leave a relationship to protect yourself and your children. For many of us this level of control from a partner seems unimaginable, yet it is the reality for many victims of domestic (family) violence.
Christmas is a time where many victims of domestic violence, namely mothers and children, are exposed to increasing levels of family violence.
This is the time when they need us the most.
This is the time when we need to take a stand to make a difference.
Domestic Violence Crisis Service (DVCS) have had record breaking levels of women and children needing emergency accommodation, and the need is only going to increase over the next few months.
DVCS offer many services to victims of family violence: crisis accommodation, counselling, court support, safety planning, support groups, young people's outreach etc.
To help DVCS continue to support those in our community who are the most vulnerable, please donate now.
