What do I do?
We also encourage you to connect with the counsellors at 1800 RESPECT, either by phone or online chat, as they can help you with information and resources to find altermate accommodation.
You do not have to go through this alone, there are people who care and will support you.
Sounds like you have tried to receive help and that your situation is deplorable.
Are family members aware of what is happening to you? Do you have any relatives that could help you?
Are yo able to apply for Centrelink assistance so you can move out?
Have you thought about talking to the police about your situation? No abuse is acceptable. No matter who is causing the abuse.
I really do hope you are able to get some assistance!
I'm not sure what else to suggest. Have you tried contact the service Sophie mentioned, the RESPECT organisation?
Could you call the police anonymously, they may have some suggestions on services you can access.
I believe Centrelink can help with rent assistance, is that still not enough to help you? I do realise in some places the cost of renting is ridiculous.
Could you consider share accommodation?
Sorry to read you have no other family members to support you.
Are there Church groups you could contact and ask if they have emergency housing options? You may well have tried this as well.
I do wish I had some answers for you!
Regards from Dools
