The Sunshine Coast Domestic & Family Violence Service System works to ensure a range of support services are available for people escaping family and domestic violence and that the services are delivered in a consistent, professional and coordinated response.
The Service is responsible for engaging multiple agencies on the Sunshine Coast including the police, courts, child protection and non-government organisation, to work together to deliver timely, coordinated and client-focused responses for people affected by domestic and family violence.
The Service coordinates the local domestic and family violence service system, helping to make sure victims are safe while holding perpetrators to account.
