Domestic and family violence protections

6 Dec 2021

Everyone deserves to feel safe at home, and domestic and family violence is never acceptable.  

Domestic and family violence (DFV) occurs when one person in an intimate personal, family or informal carer relationship uses violence or abuse to maintain power and control over the other person. 

Living with DFV can have a devastating impact on a person’s autonomy, independence, wellbeing and safety. 

In this episode with RTA's Sam Galer, we'll talk about the updated renting laws that may be able to help someone who is experiencing DFV in a rental property to leave the situation quickly, or feel safer in their home.
