About Us

Without help, abuse will contiue and likely worsen. This website is to help you understand your options and to support you.
No one deserves to be abused....

Research and consultations undertaken during the development of the Penrith Valley Community Safety Plan highlighted that issues of personal safety were most common among women and children, particularly those involved in abusive relationships.

Discussions with representatives of the Nepean Domestic Violence Network identified the need for a Regional Domestic Violence electronic information system.

This website supports the ongoing development of Domestic Violence Network resources in the Penrith LGA and across the region including the areas of Hawkesbury and the Blue Mountains.

Funding to develop and implement the website was provided through the Crime Prevention Division of the NSW Attorney General’s Department. The Site was developed in a collaborative approach with representatives from local government, NSW Police and Domestic Violence Agencies.

We would like to acknowledge the support of the following organisations that have provided information for this site:

  • Nepean Domestic Violence Network
  • Hawkesbury Action Network Against Domestic Violence
  • Blue Mountains Coalition Against Domestic Violence
  • Penrith City Council
  • Lithgow Partnership Against Domestic Violence and Family Abuse
