As a leading specialist family violence service, EDVOS provides a broad range of integrated services and programs which support women and children experiencing family violence in Melbourne’s Eastern Region including, Boroondara, Manningham, Whitehorse, Knox, Monash, Maroondah and the Yarra Ranges.

In Australia, violence against women (aged between 18-44yrs) is the main cause of death, disability and injury in women. One woman is killed every week.

We prioritise the safety of women and children as a fundamental human right whilst working to ensure perpetrators are held accountable for using violence.

EDVOS is proud to be working across the continuum of family violence which include primary prevention, early intervention, response and recovery. 

EDVOS, a not for profit organisation, relies on Government Funding and donations from the community.
