Women’s Safety Services of Central Australia (WoSSCA)
Did you know that, on average, one Australian woman a week is murdered by her current or former partner?
Women’s Safety Services of Central Australia is a safe place for women and their children who are experiencing domestic violence. Domestic violence can be in the form of physical, emotional, verbal, sexual, social, spiritual or financial abuse. Their staff are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The urban teams support all women in Alice Springs, while the remote teams visit Yuendumu, Papunya, Anmatjere (Ti Tree) and Ntaria (Hermannsburg).
In addition to shelter and emotional support, the staff at WOSSCA offer court support, in the form of case workers who assist women in securing legal protection against violence. They also offer partner support, to educate and support men who use violent and abusive behaviours towards others in their family.
