Empowering women to take control of their lives and build a better future


Since 1977, Jenny's Place has been helping women and children in the Newcastle area to find safety.

We help those who are victims of domestic violence or who face homelessness. If you (or someone you know) are in danger, please get in touch to find out about our services and your options.

Our vision is to prevent violence and to promote healthy relationships through community education and raising awareness.

Our services include homelessness support, domestic violence support, and information/resources. Come and visit us at the Newcastle Domestic Violence Resource Centre by booking an appointment today.

Everyone deserves to be safe.
