Domestic and Family Violence Services
If you have experienced domestic or family violence and are in need of some specialised services, JNC has a team of highly skilled and experienced Domestic Violence case workers. We support women and their families who are experiencing domestic violence and related issues such as housing and family court.
Our Staying Home Leaving Violence Service can assist women and their families from the Waverley, Randwick, Woollahra and Bayside LGAs to live safely in their own home or a home of their choice. We also provide case management services.
