Domestic and family violence is a reality in many Australian households, including households in our churches. In 2018-19 A Just Cause, the NSW Baptist State Association, and Baptist Care NSW worked together to run a campaign targeted at Baptist churches to raise awareness of DFV, how churches might respond helpfully, and to mobilise advocacy for greater government investment in specialist DV services and social housing.

The campaign has now ended and a group of women leaders, including theologians, pastors, and DFV specialists are developing a comprehensive resource for churches.
