Family violence impacts women, children and families in Peel. Our Domestic Violence (DV) Team works with high-risk cases where children are impacted by or exposed to domestic violence. We are one of only a handful of CAS domestic violence teams that exist in Ontario. Learn more about the impacts of Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) on infants and children.
Our DV team is one of several community partners housed at The Safe Centre of Peel, where families and individuals impacted by violence and abuse can access many of the services they need in one place. This partnership allows for faster intervention, assessments and support for women struggling to break the cycle of abuse.
