HSU Women’s Support Initiative

Rape and Domestic Violence Services Australia (RDVSA) provides support for victims of domestic violence and is accessible to all members of the HSU, no matter what they do for work or where they live.

RDVSA has been in operation for over 50 years, providing support for women, men and children who have experienced or are experiencing family or sexual violence. It is internationally recognised as a sector leader in the provision of telephone counselling services, having established 1800 RESPECT. 

Importantly, its 24-hour counselling services can link members across the state with other local services.

Donations from the HSU go towards resourcing these counselling services, which have been in high demand during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
