As a primary prevention organisation, White Ribbon Australia is unable to offer any specific legal advice. If you are seeking legal advice, we would recommend that you look at the Find Help page of our website where you are able to find local legal services, filtered by state.
Domestic violence laws and legislation relating to violence against women varies between each state and territory.
If you are in need of support, we would also recommend that you contact 1800 RESPECT, the National Sexual Assault, Domestic Family Violence Counselling Service. They are a free, 24/7, completely confidential phone or online counselling line.
White Ribbon Australia continues to advocate for the strengthening of laws across Australia to ensure the acknowledgement and protection of victims, and accountability of perpetrators of violence against women. You can find out more about our advocacy work here.
