Prevention of Violence Against Women

The information sheet lists services that can offer support when a constituent contacts your office to ask for immediate help when experiencing domestic or sexual violence. The brochure produced by the Coalition of Domestic Violence Services SA outlines how concerned citizens can assist women and their children experiencing domestic violence by supporting services and programs that are already in place in South Australia.
