DVCS is a feminist-informed community organisation that seeks to address violence and abuse in family and intimate partner relationships and to promote respect in these relationships.
We encourage people who use violence and abuse in family and intimate partner relationships to take responsibility for, and cease, this behaviour.
DVCS supports all people affected by domestic/family violence. This includes people who are subjected to violence and abuse and people who use violence and abuse. Notwithstanding this, our service does prioritise the needs of people subjected to violence and abuse.
DVCS recognises that the majority of people subjected to violence and abuse in family and intimate partner relationships are women and children, and that children are particularly vulnerable. Men too are subjected to violence and abuse and we encourage them to contact us.
DVCS supports all people subjected to violence or abuse regardless of socioeconomic backgrounds, immigration status, gender, age, sexual orientation, and all religions, cultural and ethnic backgrounds
