DOMESTIC VIOLENCE 24/7 SERVICE – Call 1300 355 305

Are you safe tonight?

The Domestic Violence 24/7 service provides crisis after-hours and weekend support (safety, support and accommodation) for women and children who are in crisis and escaping domestic or family violence.

Please note, in an emergency call 000.

Domestic and family violence (DFV) knows no boundaries. It occurs in all walks of life. It can affect people of all cultures, sexualities, religion and ages.

Women experiencing domestic and family violence are often forced to flee from their homes, fearing for their own physical and mental wellbeing and that of their children.

In collaboration with our six Alliance partners, Momentum offer Specialist Homelessness Services to respond to these situations and ensure your safety and wellbeing.

Our services assist women, aged 16 years and over, with or without children, who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless due to domestic and family violence. We offer support for your short and long term needs which includes:

  • Crisis accommodation in our Women and Children’s Refuges and safe rooms across northern New South Wales, to immediately help women and families and support them while they find a safe new home
  • Providing support to stay safe at home
  • Individualised case management to support housing, wellbeing and safety needs
  • Specialist staff who will work with you to understand the supports that you might need.  If you choose, we can link you with counselling, police, court advocacy services, victims’ financial supports, social support, family law and legal aid.  We can also assist with education and employment support.
  • We offer culturally appropriate and safe services especially for Aboriginal Women and their children, through our Aboriginal partner agencies.
  • We work with specialists to support women and children from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse backgrounds.

Call us at any time on 1300 355 305 for our help.
