Domestic Violence Crisis Service ACT (DVCS)
The Domestic Violence Crisis Service aims to address violence and abuse in personal relationships and to promote respect and fairness in personal relationships.
The Domestic Violence Crisis Service recognises that the majority of people subjected to violence and abuse in personal relationships are women and children, and that children are particularly vulnerable.
The Domestic Violence Crisis Service operates within a framework that emphasizes human rights and social justice and gives priority to personal safety.
The Domestic Violence Crisis Service:
- provides crisis intervention, advocacy, referral, information, support and practical assistance for people subjected to, or using, violence and abuse in relationships, giving priority to those subjected to violence;
- encourages those who use violence and abuse in relationships to take responsibility for, and cease, this behaviour;
- addresses the problem of violence and abuse in personal relationships, and associated issues
