Australian Domestic Violence Statistics in 2017

These Aussie Domestic Violence Stats Are Really Upsetting, and We Need to Face Them

Domestic violence is one of Australia's most pressing issues, and the numbers that prove it are truly alarming. While we hear a lot about big cases that capture the nation's attention (remember poor Allison Baden-Clay?), there are so many that we're all missing.

With one woman killed in Australia every week by a current or former partner, domestic violence has reached epidemic proportions. It's time to start paying close attention, if you aren't already, to the below key statistics, which we've compiled via the Domestic Violence Prevention Centre and White Ribbon.

The Statistics You Need to Know

How You Can Help

Foundations and support networks like White Ribbon, the Domestic Violence Prevention Centre and 1800 Respect are packed with information on what constitutes domestic violence and ways you can help.

If you need to talk to someone about sexual, domestic or family violence, call 1800 737 732. Someone is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
