About Safe Steps Family Violence Response Centre Victoria
Safe Steps is Victoria’s 24/7 family violence response centre, providing a “statewide entry point” for victims and survivors of domestic and family violence. Services include information and referral, crisis response, specialist family violence risk assessment, safety planning and access to supported crisis accommodation.
We also provide specialist counselling nationally through 1800 RESPECT. Our practice is trauma-informed and guided by evidence. We provide services to all victims and survivors and recognise that most of our work is dedicated to the needs of women and children which reflects the gendered nature of domestic and family violence.
