Who are Friends With Dignity?

Friends with Dignity is a national not-for-profit organisation providing assistance to men, women and children who have been displaced by domestic violence.

Founded by former Director of Assist A Sista, Manuela Whitford, our dedicated team of volunteers work with registered referral agencies to turn houses into welcoming sanctuaries for people escaping domestic violence.

Together we give people the dignity of a home to call their own.

Help survivors reclaim their dignity

Friends with Dignity can only operate with the support of our friends. All donations go directly to supporting survivors of domestic violence to rebuild their lives and reclaim their dignity.

We accept gift cards, cash, household and personal care items, and we issue appeals for specific items.

Friends with Dignity is a registered national charity, so any donation of two dollars and over is tax deductible.

Little Friends Scholarship

Friends with Dignity and Jeunesse Kids have partnered to provide bi-annual monetary scholarships to children who have faced Domestic and Family Violence throughout Australia.

Our Little Friends Scholarship powered by Jeunesse Kids has been established to ensure all children have the ability to either further their education and/or be able to participate in extra-curricula activities that they may not be able to pursue due to the financial impact of Domestic and Family Violence within their family environment.

There will be 5 x Educational Scholarships and 5 x Extra-Curricula Scholarships awarded twice per year. Each scholarship is up to the value of $500.00 (maximum amount that can be applied for).

Suzi Dent

Brand Ambassador – Suzi Dent

Suzi is a vibrant and dynamic powerhouse who positively impacts everyone she meets.

Joyous, funny and refreshingly real, Suzi is a life coach, mentor and multiple award-winning television hair and makeup artist with more than 34 years experience. She enjoys sharing her life experiences and being a positive influence amongst women as a motivational speaker.

Suzi’s goal and passion is to start a conversation around the world about ageing with a positive mindset. Her favourite mantra is “Age is just a number, it’s what you do with it that counts”. Suzi proved this is very much the case by turning the beauty pageant world upside down in 2017.

At 54 years young, self-confessed tomboy Suzi entered her very first ever beauty pageant. After several top awards, Suzi won the title of Mrs Earth Health 2017 – a title awarded to the delegate who best represents a positive image for all women, and a healthy mind, body and spiritual realm, regardless of their size or age.

“As the reigning Mrs Earth Health 2017, I aim to promote mental, physical, and emotional awareness by showing that I’m comfortable in my own skin, and in a healthy mind, body and spirit at all times. I am so proud to be aligned with Friends with Dignity and to help raise awareness of Domestic and Family Violence and to empower and motivate women who have been affected by DV” said Suzi.

A HUGE welcome Suzi!
