DVSM is committed to sharing information and resources freely and without cost barriers to people and communities who need it most.
We support people experiencing Domestic and Family Violence and/or homelessness and related wellbeing needs. We support people who contact us directly, through our services, and indirectly, through our websites and by working alongside other services and organisations that are supporting people experiencing violence.
