Domestic Violence Drop-In Centres


The Drop-in Centre programme offers counselling and other forms of intervention to victims or perpetrators of domestic violence, including victims of rape and incest.  This programme also provides information and referral services to persons who require assistance to deal with other personal and family issues such as drug abuse, anger management, conflict management and teenage pregnancy. Counseling and support are also available 24 hours a day through the National Domestic Violence Hotline at (868) 800-SAVE (7283).




Am I eligible?

Persons who are affected by domestic violence, rape, incest and other forms of abuse should visit one of our centres.  Other persons within the community wishing to receive counselling or information pertaining to domestic violence or other personal or family related issues can also visit one of the centres.

Drop-in Centres are open one day per week.  Appointments are not required as services can be accessed on a "walk-in" basis.
