Specialist support services
New specialist services were established across Queensland to better support people affected by domestic and family violence (DFV).
These services will strengthen the capacity of the service system to respond to the needs of people affected by DFV, particularly in locations where limited or no specialist services previously existed.
Individuals will have greater access to specialised DFV support, including:
- new and enhanced perpetrator programs
- new and enhanced domestic violence counselling services
- court-based support for victims and respondents
- safety upgrade services to enhance home security measures as part of a safety plan for victims of DFV
- new crisis shelters for women and children escaping DFV.
The services will also be available to support families at risk of entering or re-entering the child protection system as a result of DFV.
