Newcastle Domestic Violence Resource Centre​

The Newcastle Domestic Violence Resource Centre fills a services gap and plays a key part in breaking the cycles of domestic violence and homelessness in our community. It supports clients across the Newcastle and Lake Macquarie areas and the wider Hunter region.

We empower women, by providing practical assistance, support and information, to protect their right to live safely and free from violence.

Our purpose is to prevent violence and promote healthy relationships through specialist, long-term, early intervention, domestic violence support service provision, and community education and awareness.

“The most dangerous time for women and children experiencing domestic violence is when a woman first decides to leave an abusive relationship. Safety and exit planning are crucial components of the work we do to ensure that women are able to leave safely. We support them with all of their needs and walk alongside them all of the way.” S.J., Jenny’s Place caseworker
