    Victim Support Services
    Victim Support Service (VSS) is a statewide, community based not-for-profit organisation in South Australia. Qualified staff and trained volunteers provide a comprehensive range of services for adults and older adolescents who have experienced crime. This includes individual crime victims, their families, friends and the wider community.
    We are a non-government organisation working in partnership with communities, police and other organisations across regional, rural and metropolitan areas.

    Violence Intervention Service

    A Family Violence Court is held at the Elizabeth, Port Adelaide and Adelaide Magistrates Court one day a week to hear criminal charges against men who have alleged assaulted a family member. Having a designated court enables the police to provide special assistance to victims and enables Violence Intervention Program (VIP) staff to attend to provide information, advocacy and support services to victims and their children. Men appearing in the FVC can be referred by the Magistrate to attend a 24 week “Stopping Violence” group as part of a condition of bail or a bond. The Stopping Violence Program is provided by the VIP staff .
    The Family Violence Court at Elizabeth is linked with the Northern Violence Intervention Program (NVIP), The Central Northern Adelaide Health Service manages the NVIP and the staff in the program consists of Men’s Worker, Women’s Advocate, Children Advocates, Manager and admin officers and Community Correctional Services Officers who supervise the male offenders. The program also works collaboratively with local Police. The Department of Health, Central Northern Adelaide Heath Service, the Attorney-General's Department and the Department for Correctional Services provide funding for the NVIP.
    The Adelaide Magistrates Court is linked with the Central Violence Intervention Program (CVIP) The Salvation Army manages and provides staff for the CVIP, from their Pirie Street office. The Salvation Army, the Attorney-General’s Department and the Department fund the service for the Correctional Services. The program also works collaboratively with local Police from Mount Barker, Port Adelaide, Holden Hill and also from the Adelaide and Sturt Family Violence Investigation Sections of the South Australian Police.

    South Australian Police: Domestic Violence
    Domestic violence (DV) is an abuse of power which occurs when one partner attempts to physically or psychologically dominate, coerce and/or control the other. It is a deliberate act and is rarely an isolated event. Over time, the violence tends to increase in frequency and severity, and can become fatal.
    Domestic Violence is against the law
    Police will support victims and hold offenders accountable for their actions.
    Police encourage all victims of domestic violence to contact police on 000 (in an emergency) or on 131444 for police attendance.
    More information
    You'll find more detailed information in the following pages:
