COVID-19 Advice

As of Tuesday 24 March 2020, the Centre for Non-Violence will be changing the way we provide family violence services. These changes are based on advice provided by the Department of Health & Human Services, the Victorian and Federal Governments and health experts. We are committed to protecting the health and safety of our staff, clients and the wider community, and to reducing the risk of COVID-19. Our services are still available, but in a reduced capacity.

We will stop all face-to-face appointments and walk-in enquiries immediately. Where possible, we will provide our services by telephone.

If you are experiencing family violence and require assistance, please call us on free call 1800 884 292 throughout the Loddon area.

Coronavirus Hotline - 1800 675 398 If you suspect you may have the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) call the dedicated hotline, open 24 hours, 7 days.
