What is Domestic and Family Violence?

Domestic and Family Violence refers to violence, intimidation and coercion most commonly perpetrated by a current or previous intimate partner (including same-sex partners), but also including violence perpetrated between family members, housemates or adult children. Family relationships include people who are related to one another through blood, marriage or de facto partnerships, adoption and fostering relationships. They include the full range of kinship ties in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, extended family relationships, and constructs of family within lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex or queer (LGBTIQ) communities. Violence includes but is not limited to physical, sexual, verbal, emotional, financial, psychological and spiritual abuse.
