“Domestic and family violence is a crime mostly committed behind closed doors. This is why it is crucial for us to speak directly to victim-survivors from diverse cultural and language backgrounds so they know that support services are available to give them the help they need,” said NSW Attorney General and Minister for Prevention of Domestic Violence Mr Mark Speakman.

“The poster campaign will appear in shopping centres, including restrooms, near supermarkets and pharmacies and at essential services such as hospitals and medical centres. These are places where victim-survivors may feel safe to contact the Domestic Violence Line or take down their number.

“The trained counsellors will listen to you, they will believe you, and they will help you. If you need an interpreter, one will be available.”

Domestic and family violence can happen to anyone and exists across all cultural and linguistically diverse communities. This is reflected in the campaign’s imagery.

Acting Minister for Multiculturalism Geoff Lee said a series of in-language radio advertisements will run across six stations to ensure people in the community are aware they can access the confidential and free Domestic Violence Line.

“The scenarios in the radio advertisements show that domestic and family violence is not just physical or sexual, it can include control over money, immigration status and restrictions placed over a person’s movements,” Mr Lee said.

“This campaign will also help empower migrant women experiencing violence to seek help and to know they always have support available to them. Trained counsellors will not force callers to do anything they don’t want to do.”

A social media campaign with ads on WeChat and Facebook will also run to reach people online.

The NSW Domestic Violence line is a free 24/7 confidential support. Call 1800 65 64 63. Interpreters are available.
