We are an organisation called Domestic Violence Resource Centre (DVRCV) and we make websites, videos, apps, brochures, posters and lots more to help people understand what family violence is, why it happens, how to recognise it and how to help others who are experiencing it.

About this website

This site used to be called “Bursting the Bubble”.

We first created it back in 2003 with generous donations from some very kind organisations and the loving support of other agencies like ours, supporting writers, artists, digital developers and people who all care deeply about kids growing up safe, smart, protected and free from violence.

We also got a lot of help from people who grew up with violence in their family or were abused as a child themselves. Their survivor stories, voices, advice and guidance is all through this site, so anyone out there today can know.

You're not alone
There are things for you to stay safe and care for yourself
The way you feel is normal and none of this is your fault
You can talk to someone about this and get help
