Escaping Violence Payment

Escaping Violence Payment.

The Escaping Violence Payment (EVP) program is available to anyone who is experiencing violence from their partners.

This includes violent or threatening behavior that is:

  • Physically, verbally or sexually abusive
  • Emotionally, spiritually or psychologically abusive
  • Economically abusive
  • Threatening, coercive, or seeks to control or dominate the other person

How it works.

If you are looking to leave a violent partner, or have recently left, and you are struggling with the finances to live your life in safety, you could be eligible for:

  • Up to $1,500 in financial assistance such as vouchers for essential items
  • Goods and services such as removalists, bonds or basics for a new home
  • Wrap-around support including casework

You do not need to be connected to UnitingSA to access the program. If you’re already working with a family violence support service, talk to them about what to do next.

If you are not yet in touch with a support service, get in touch with our team on (08) 8440 2245.
