Women who are going through a difficult time may not be able to get adequate support from family and friends. They may be too embarrassed, confused or scared to go to the police or other official centres or may be simply overwhelmed by the court or police process.

Our Befriender service supports many women who are victims of domestic violence to go to the Family Court, police stations, hospitals, and other help centres. Our Befrienders’ presence have helped many women who are fearful of facing the Respondent face-to-face at mentions or hearings.

Call our Helpline to get a referral for Befriender service. After you call, a Support Services staff will usually call you back in 3 days to arrange a Befriender for you.
