Domestic Violence Specialist Service

The Domestic Violence Specialist Service opened in July 2019 on Palm Island. It provides a single dedicated team focussed on reducing the rate of domestic and family violence and abuse.

The Service is based at the Children and Family Centre (CFC), located on Beach Road, Palm Island, and also works sometimes from other PICC facilities.

It works with both victims and users of domestic violence, and those at risk of experiencing or using domestic violence, to provide comprehensive measures supporting victims and re-educating users.

The Service also works with the new Specialist Domestic Violence Court on Palm Island.

For more information, visit the CFC and ask the friendly reception staff for Janet, or call 1800 725 647 or 4791 4031.
