A new report suggests an increasing number of local women and children are being subjected to technology-facilitated abuse in domestic violence situations.

While technology-based abuse is a factor in the majority of domestic violence cases, the national report found 1 in 4 cases also involve abuse being directed at or through children.

eSafety Commissioner, Julie Inman Grant, says the behaviour is totally unacceptable and support is available to locals if they or someone they know is at risk.
