CAMPBELLTOWN SAYS NO TO DOMESTIC AND FAMILY  VIOLENCE

 Domestic and Family Violence violates Human Rights and impacts on individual's health, freedom, and safety.   No Violence is Okay or ever acceptable for any reason.

Campbelltown Domestic Violence Committee (CDVC) is committed to working towards eliminating violence against women and children and believes in every person's right to live without fear. 

Campbelltown Domestic Violence Committee strives to raise awareness of the impact of domestic and family abuse and provide resources to the community to support victims, inform and educate on the impact of violence on the community.

Domestic and family violence is everywhere in our community; and Campbelltown LGA has one of the highest rates of domestic violence incidents in Sydney.  Violence against women and children is a serious concern in Australia where one women a week is killed by a partner or ex partner

In Australia over 300, 000 women experience violence in a year; of those women, more than half have children in their care. For children living with abuse their health and development can be impacted long term.
