Warrina’s Services during COVID-19
Warrina will continue to provide services to clients over the phone and where safe to do so, by video conferencing. The areas we cover are the Coffs Harbour, Nambucca Valley and Bellingen LGA’s.
We are anticipating an increase in DFV, and hope people can be alert to this risk within the community.
Please note we may experience limitation in our services due to the impact. This could include reduced staff numbers. We will be focusing our efforts on keeping women and children safe through safety planning, crisis assistance and risk assessments.
Services we are providing
- If a woman (and her children) need emergency accommodation due to domestic and family violence, please contact the Women and Children’s Refuge on 66524000. Please note that the refuge may be full, and we may request that you call Link2Home on 1800 152 152 or the DV Line on 1800 65 64 63. This is as these services can provide temporary accommodation in these circumstances as well.
- If a woman is remaining in her home after the perpetrator of violence has been removed or left, please contact Staying Home, Leaving Violence on 66586693. This service provides case management and security upgrades.
- If a woman requires support to get an AVO, please phone WDVCAS on 66500302
- If a man is perpetrating violence and wants support to deescalate and develop strategies to stop their use of violence, please call Fixed Address on 0428611877. This program offers individual case management to men.
