The scourge of domestic violence is potentially one of the biggest issues we face as a nation as we go forward into the 21st century. We need to come together to overcome this problem. We all have a part to play in making things right.

Georges River Life Care is actively trying to create awareness and provide solutions in our local area; playing a vital role in providing services that will assist victims and help ease the destruction that Domestic Violence causes to families in our community.

But our efforts alone won’t reach their maximum effectiveness unless we have the backing of the entire community. We need your help!
