Jane* contacted our domestic violence services after a friend had recommended that she seek some assistance.

Jane had been in relationship for over 30 years and had recently fled from the family home she shared with her ex-partner.

Staying Home Leaving Violence supported Jane with safety planning, securing her new property and successfully assisted her to apply for financial compensation to replace all her furniture which she had to leave behind.

The Staying Home Leaving Violence case worker provided education and information on the cycle of domestic violence, as Jane had said during her initial meeting that she knew very little about domestic violence.

Jane said meeting and speaking with her case workers, was the first time someone had listened to her story and validated that the abuse she had been experiencing was domestic violence.

My new home is my own little sanctuary that belongs just to me

In her time since commencing with the service, Jane has re-entered the work force, engaged in financial counselling, which has contributed to her current financial stability. The relationships with her adult children have also significantly improved.

Our domestic violence services provide support for women and children experiencing violence and abuse from a partner or ex-partner, another family member or someone close to them.

Our comprehensive range of services are provided at no charge and include: safety risk assessment, crisis  and transitional accommodation, transport, safety planning, court support, information and referral, case management, community education and support to access victim’s compensation.
