Our vision is to work together with Aboriginal communities to ensure safe & culturally strong futures for our women, children & young people.
Aunty Liz's vision was to provide Aboriginal women and their children with a safe place where they could escape family violence and where they could get their lives back together while accessing the help and support they needed.
Who We Are
We provide refuge accommodation and specialist family violence services to Aboriginal women and their children. Our support also extends to parents of Aboriginal children, as well as partners and ex-partners of Aboriginal people.
We are also a peak body in Victoria for Aboriginal women and family violence, advising Peak Aboriginal Organisations, Government & NGO sector on issues affecting Aboriginal women & families.
We are proudly an Aboriginal community controlled organisation. We work in consultation with our community in all aspects of our services.
Central to our work is the aim to provide advocacy and support for the empowerment of Aboriginal women.
Our logo was drawn by Artist Lyn Briggs.
