Yellow Gate: Support for the South

HF12 yellow gate feature
Posted 17 Apr 2024

A new place of connection and support has launched for women experiencing family, domestic and sexual violence in the southern metropolitan area.

It’s about building a community where Southern women find strength, support, and the resources needed for a brighter, safer future.

The Yellow Gate is a one-stop, drop-in service where women can seek much-needed support from services such as our Yarrow Place Rape and Sexual Assault Service and our Cedar Health Service: Inclusive domestic and family violence healthcare.

Our teams from these services work here alongside other essential service providers who can provide legal guidance, financial counselling and culturally sensitive support.

The name signifies positivity, hope and a transition towards a new phase of life.

The hub will be run by Community Justice Services SA and is located within the Noarlunga Centre.

To contact Yellow Gate call 1300 564 164 or email
