Welcome to the North Queensland Domestic Violence Resource Service (NQDVRS)

Domestic and Family Violence can be physical acts of violence, abusive acts of yelling, swearing and put downs, manipulation and threats.

These acts are all tactics of power and control used by the perpetrator. They can occur together or be isolated acts over a period of time, however, they all make up a pattern of abusive and frightening behaviours.

These behaviours are driven by the abuser and have no relationship to what the victim does or doesn’t do.

It is not normal for one partner to feel threatened, too frightened to argue back, and too frightened to disagree or express their opinion.

NQDVRS aims to provide a range of crisis intervention, face to face assistance and group programs for victims and perpetrators of domestic and family violence.
