Domestic Violence is a national crisis. On average 1 woman a week is killed and 1 in 3 women has experienced physical violence, more than half have children in their care.
Hope + Heal will offer three residential retreats in NSW for 20 women who are escaping or have left violent/controlling relationships.
Suffering long-term physical and psychological health issues including PTSD, anxiety and depression, women who experience domestic violence are often not aware of the services that are available for them and their children, or how to access them.
Creating a safe, nurturing environment, this 3-day retreat allows time for healing, self-care and learning proven coping mechanisms for domestic violence survivors.
Designed by leading experts in the fields of wellbeing, finance, trauma, nutrition, relationships and communication, to empower and educate participants connecting them to friendships and further support services.
In addition to time where the women can freely enjoy the facilities and beautiful, peaceful surroundings, each participant will receive;
Education on stress, trauma and healing
