Domestic violence information and resources – free 8 page booklet

Domestic Violence Booklet_Page_1Rural Women’s Network has produced a special 8-page booklet – Domestic violence: it can happen to anyone – to raise awareness of domestic violence and provide information on the services and resources currently available in this area. There is some great information for anyone impacted by domestic violence such as what to do if you’re a victim or how to help a friend.

The idea for this resource came from the women involved in RWN’s Rural Women Connect initiative. You can find out more about the activities of RWConnect on the RWN website.

Domestic violence takes many forms and can involve violent, abusive or intimidating behaviour carried out by a partner, carer or family member to control, dominate or instil fear. It doesn’t have to be physical abuse. It can be emotional, psychological, financial, sexual or other types of abuse. It can affect anyone in the community, regardless of gender, sexual identity, race, age, culture, ethnicity, religion, disability, economic status or location.

It is never too late to seek help. If you or someone you know is a victim of domestic violence you can call the National Sexual Assault, Family & Domestic Violence Counselling line on 1800 737 732 or 1800respect.org.au
