Rape & Domestic Violence Services Australia supports people affected by sexual, domestic or family violence. We believe they deserve to be listened to and supported in their recovery.

We offer expert, confidential telephone, online and face to face counselling to people of all genders who have experienced sexual, domestic or family violence, and specialist help for their supporters and those experiencing vicarious trauma.

We also advocate with governments, the media and the community to prevent and end violence, and to improve their response when it occurs.

Our counselling services

Our expert counsellors are all trauma specialists. This means they understand the impacts of violence. They can work with each person in the way that suits them best.

Our counsellors are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week by telephone or online. We also provide face to face counselling at some women’s health centres in NSW.
