Who we are

The Newman Women’s Shelter (The Shelter) is a safe place for women and children and open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Are you experiencing family and domestic violence (FDV)? The Shelter offers a confidential service to anyone affected by FDV.


  • You are not responsible for the abuse
  • Your partner does not have to abuse you
  • Most abusers try to blame their partners for their behaviour
  • FDV isn’t always about physical abuse
  • Any form of abuse can leave you fearful, scared, hurt and feeling trapped
  • There is a way out

The Shelter acknowledges the Traditional Owners of country in which they work – the Nyiyaparli people - and the Martu as the caretakers, and recognise their continuing connection to land, waters and culture. THE SHELTER pays respect to the Elders past, present and emerging.
