What We Do

SANCTUARIES

Those leaving refuge or violent homes usually have no belongings or financial resources to rebuild their lives. The fear of being unable to provide for themselves or their children is often a determining factor in whether a person returns to a violent relationship. To assist with alleviating this fear, we aim to ensure survivors have the household items required to live with dignity by working with the community to source pre-loved and new household items. These items are then placed into the survivor’s new house by a team of volunteers, transforming it into a safe home (a ‘sanctuary’).

URGENT REQUESTS

Providing essential items on a time critical basis (less than 48 hours). This may be in the form of furniture, household items or funds required by a survivor of domestic violence. We also provide urgent requests for crisis items (bathroom, laundry, personal care, comfort) direct to refuges and crisis centres.

LITTLE FRIENDS

Aims to ensure that children affected by domestic violence are not disadvantaged in the transition to a safe environment by supplying items designed to provide comfort and educational support. We want our Little Friends to stand out, at school and in the community, for all the right reasons.

Our Little Friends Scholarship Powered by Jeunesse Kids offers a number of academic and co-curricular scholarships to children affected by DV on a bi-annual basis. Scholarships may fund academic competitions, school uniforms / books, school camps, music / art lessons or school sports and registration fee’s. www.jeunessekids.org for details go to friendswithdignity.org.au/little-friends-scholarship

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT & AWARENESS

Actively working within our communities to encourage individuals, groups and organisations to Step Up and become part of the solution, Speak Out against domestic violence and assist in providing Support to survivors.
