Staying Home Leaving Violence


Staying Home Leaving Violence (SHLV) is a specialised domestic and family violence program aimed at promoting the housing stability of women and children by enabling them to remain safely in their home and to leave the violence behind. SHLV works with the police and courts to remove the violent family member so that if she chooses, she and the children can stay in the home.


The program provides assistance to women and their children in the Northern NSW region from Grafton to Tweed Heads who:


  • have separated from a violent partner or have a strong desire to
  • choose to remain in their own home or relocate to a safer home if necessary
  • experience ongoing abuse after separation from the abusive person
