Mid North Coast Domestic & Family Violence Mapping Project
The Mid North Coast Domestic and Family Violence Service Mapping project originated from a series of workshops which were held on the Mid North Coast in 2014 to discuss current priorities and issues for women affected by domestic and family violence (DFV).
The workshops were held in Nambucca, Coffs Harbour and Kempsey. These geographic areas were prioritised due to the high levels of DFV being reported there. The DFV Mapping Project was assisted through funding from the Foundation for Regional and Rural Renewal and through our NSW Department of Family and Community Services funded Resourcing and Development Project.
Mapping key transition points, including services for women escaping domestic violence, is a priority of the Mid North Coast District Child and Family Planning Group. This group will use the outcomes of the DFV Mapping Project to inform future directions around planning and funding for DFV services.

You can find out more about the local context of DFV responses within Local Government Areas (LGA) of the Mid North Coast at the links below:
Each LGA document (Parts Two to Part Five) includes information about:
- The prevalence of DFV in the LGA
- Identified DFV issues in the LGA
- The local DV Monitoring Committee and their campaigns in the LGA
- Services and programs that are available in each LGA to support people who have been impacted by DFV (Please note that it is out of scope for this project to determine the capacity of these services and programs to meet community needs, and that it is recognised that they will have varying capacities).
