Support in the community

We know that not all women experiencing domestic abuse want to come to a refuge. Our outreach staff can give support and advice while you are still living at home.

Outreach workers will visit you in your own home or in another suitable place in the community. These staff can support you by providing someone to talk to, access to counselling, information about your legal rights, legal protection and safety planning, support at court, access to personal development and educational training, guidance on what other agencies offer, and provide details of an interpreter service.

One to One Support

Some women prefer to see one of our workers in the Support & Resource Centre in Adelaide Park. Telephone 028 9066 6049 to make an appointment for a one-to-one session with one of our support workers.

Support Groups and Personal Development

Support groups and personal development training provide a time for women to come together to share their experiences of domestic violence and explore new beginnings in a safe and respectful group setting. The groups can provide an opportunity for you to reduce your sense of feeling alone, increase your understanding of your experiences, and help bring about positive changes in your life.

Contact us on 028 9066 6049 to find out more information.
