Domestic violence can be in the form of physical, emotional, verbal, sexual, social, spiritual or financial abuse. Nobody has the right to be violent towards you. Not husbands, partners, ex-husbands or ex-partners, friends, family members, boyfriends, girlfriends or strangers. Nobody.  


There are ways we can help now and in the future. The services we provide are: 

  • We provide support services for all women in Central Australia, who have experienced or are at risk of experiencing domestic, family or sexual violence.


  • There are also a number of other local organisations and government agencies who can help you. Here's where to find help in Central Australia. 

  • We help women in Alice Springs, as well as across borders. Our services reach women in communities across the tri-state region of Western Australia, South Australia and Queensland.

Women’s Safety Services of Central Australia (WoSSCA) is a not-for-profit, non-government organisation that operates on a feminist framework and is committed to assisting and enabling women and children experiencing domestic, family and sexual violence.

We acknowledge the traditional owners and custodians of the land we work on, as the first people of this country. We pay our respects to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander elders past, present and emerging.

Our vision is for greater safety, respect and dignity for all women and their children in Central Australia.
