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 victim survivors of domestic and family violence and those facing homelessness. If you, or someone you know, are in danger, please get in touch to find out about our service and how we may be able to support you.

Our vision is to help prevent domestic and family violence and to promote healthy relationships by amplifying community education and awareness.

Our domestic and family violence and homelessness support includes crisis and transitional
accommodation, Outreach casework and prevention and early intervention assistance via our Domestic Violence Resource Centre. If you need support, we encourage you to book an appointment online or contact us on 02 4927 6289.

Everyone deserves to be safe.
