The Staying Home Leaving Violence Program provides support to women who have experienced or continue to experience domestic violence and who have separated from the violent person.
If you are living in the Coffs Harbour LGA and are over 18 years old, then we can support you to remain safely in your home to maintain your family, friends, school and work connections. We work together with local services, including police if you want, to make your home and family more safe.
The program provides a range of supports for women and their children including safety planning, home security, support for women and children through the legal process with AVO’s and family law, information and referrals to other services and support with Victim Services applications.
You have the right to live in a home that is safe and free from violence
