The Domestic Violence Crisis Service (DVCS) recognises that members of the community want to be involved in raising the profile of our service and of domestic violence in general. These are some of the ways that you can help DVCS in its work of supporting families affected by domestic/family violence:
In-Kind Donation Register
- The provision of in-kind donations to assist us running our service is incredibly valuable. In-kind donations assist us in directing more money towards frontline services, while maintaining a safe and positive work environment for our employees.
- If you have a skill (and have the necessary qualifications) that could be useful, and are happy to provide free or discounted labour, please complete the In-Kind Donation Form and return it to our office.
- In particular we are looking for electricians, plumbers, air-conditioning maintenance, carpenters, cleaners, carpet cleaners, locksmiths and car cleaners.
- If you would like to volunteeer your time and/or expertise, please complete the form at the bottom of this page. Please note volunteers do not engage with clients. Volunteers are utilised for the purpose of setting up and assisting at events such as Ceremonies, Balls and Information Sessions.
- Become a DVCS Member. Memberships are valid for 12 months. For further information see our Membership page.
- Host a gold coin donation morning tea at your work place, or a night-in with the proceeds being raised going to DVCS. Alternatively sign up to run a fun run to raise money and awareness for DVCS.
- Host a Trivia Night, High Tea, Bowling Night or other event with proceeds going to DVCS. DVCS is able to provide assistance in promotion via our social media sites, this website and mailing list.
- AMF have a great fundraising package, just email Sharon from AMF for all the info. Let us know if you are hosting an event and we can help you out with a bit of promotion.
