Culturally safe, holistic family violence services for Aboriginal women
We provide secure 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.
Using Violence is not OK
It is a basic human right to feel safe & live free from violence
Family violence does not have to be physical. It includes a broad range of acts which make somebody feel scared, unsafe or unable to have control over their own lives. This can happen between intimate-partners, ex-partners, immediate or extended family members. If you feel scared of somebody close to you, or feel you don't have control to make decisions in your life, you may be experiencing family violence.
