Temporary Safe House a Welcome Support for those Experiencing Domestic Violence

Posted: 28 May 2020
Northern Beaches Council today welcomed the state government announcement to provide a temporary safe house in Manly for people experiencing domestic violence.

Mayor Michael Regan said the isolation of COVID-19 had heightened many domestic violence issues.

“This announcement will literally be a life saver for many in our community who currently have nowhere else to go and cannot stay safely in their own homes,” Mayor Regan said.  

“Most of us can only imagine what a terrifying experience the isolation of COVID-19 has been for those already suffering in abusive relationships.

“A huge thanks to all those community members whom we can’t name, for working with us, quietly lobbying government to make this a reality. This is a massive outcome for those without a voice who need protection and support right now.

“Their advocacy and commitment will make a real difference to the lives of so many.”

If you are experiencing violence in the home, when it is safe to do so contact the NSW Domestic Violence Line on 1800 65 64 63 or 1800 RESPECT (1800 737 732).

In an emergency, always call the NSW Police on Triple Zero (000).
