WRS aims to empower and assist women toward safety, self-sufficiency and wellbeing in the community by providing:

  • Information and support
  • Assessment of situation including risks and needs
  • Safety planning and referral to services to improve safety
  • Case-management and Case-coordination of multiple services
  • Counselling to support recovery
  • Support groups focused on education and recovery from trauma
  • Community education

WRS is a program funded through Family and Community Services (FACS) in the Integrated Domestic and Family Violence Services Program (ID&FVSP).
It also steers the local DV Committee – Byron Shire Integrated Domestic Violence Committee – which has members from NSW Police, Community Corrections, NSW Health, Drug and Alcohol services, family support services, Women’s Domestic Violence Court Advocacy Service (WDVCAS). The committee is a multi-agency response which aims to improve outcomes for those affected by domestic violence through increased and more proactive services to victims and children, intentional and co-ordinated criminal justice responses and integrated service systems, and through taking preventative action by way of community education.
The committee produces resources like “Charmed and Dangerous – a woman’s guide to reclaiming a healthy relationship” which are available through the WRS for FREE or through donation.
