Wyn Carr Women’s Services at Wyn Carr House ceased operations from 1 July 2019.

UnitingCare West is still delivering innovative ways to address family and domestic violence in WA, specifically through our Indigenous Family Violence program.

What is domestic violence?

Family and domestic violence occurs when someone in an intimate or family relationship attempts to gain or maintain power and control over another person. This includes a range of abusive or controlling behaviours, such as:

  • Physical abuse
  • Psychological abuse
  • Emotional abuse
  • Financial abuse
  • Spiritual abuse
  • Stalking

 The effects of family and domestic violence

The effects on women and children are profound. Along with the possibility of serious injury or death, women often experience significant mental health issues and/or alcohol and other drug issues and it can have a major impact on their parenting role and functioning.
