All 31 new domestic violence crisis accommodation beds are now open across South Australia, helping to protect more women and children when home is no longer a safe place.
In addition to eight beds operating in Northern Adelaide since January, six new beds are now open in Southern Adelaide and 17 more in regional SA, including in the Murray Mallee, Eyre and Western and Limestone Coast regions.
Women experiencing domestic and family violence will be supported by Women's Safety Services SA staff, with dedicated case managers to assist women to plan their next steps while living in a safe place, including supporting women to return home safely, where possible, and into safe and stable housing.
During this time of self-isolation and working from home, not all women are able to reach out themselves, making it more important than ever that we look out for one another.
If you are concerned about your safety or someone you know, please call the 24/7 Domestic Violence Crisis Line on 1800 800 098 or 000 in an emergency.
