Family Violence Response Services

Quantum has a wide range of programs and options for women, with or without children, experiencing family violence.

Family violence is not limited to physical violence.

It includes a range of controlling behaviours, such as limiting your social opportunities, financial independence or security, using emotional abuse such as calling you names or embarrassing you in public settings, threatening violence and more behaviours that relate to exerting power and control over you.

If you are a man who is experiencing family violence, you should contact your General Practitioner who may be able to assist you to access specialist services including couselling.
