Preventing Violence Against Women

MCWH is leading the way to prevent violence against migrant and refugee women in Victoria and Australia.

Violence against migrant and refugee women

Violence against women exists across all Australian communities. We know that migrant and refugee women's experiences of violence are often impacted by their immigration context, family and community networks, their experience of family violence and related services and the place where they live.

MCWH is committed to working together to stop violence against women before it starts.

MCWH is not a family violence service but we can explain the services available and how you can contact them.

For state-wide professional support, information and referrals in relation to family violence, you can call the Safe Steps Family Violence Response Centre on 1800 015 188.
