Domestic and Family Violence

Housing NSW recognises that domestic and family violence has a serious and harmful impact on victims and their families.

Housing NSW is committed to reducing the effects of domestic and family violence by improving access to safe and affordable housing, and providing appropriate and timely housing assistance. Any person being subjected to or recently experiencing, domestic or family violence may apply for housing assistance from Housing NSW.

Housing NSW and participating community housing providers provide a range of assistance to help eligible clients in need. The Housing Pathways website or the local Housing NSW office can provide more information about the types of help available and how to access them.

Housing NSW is also a partner in state-wide domestic violence initiatives such as Staying Home, Leaving Violence and the Domestic Violence Intervention Court Model.
