Women experiencing domestic violence have several hurdles to overcome to access support services. They need to recognise something is wrong, be strong enough to seek support; able to locate relevant services and then account for their absence from the home without raising suspicion.
Following best practice principles, Safe Haven, run by The Deli Women & Children’s Centre, helps women move beyond violence.
Safe Haven will offer counseling, workshops, parenting support, DV support, legal and other advice to families in the Botany and Randwick area. It also runs special educational performances designed for children and parents, such as Sticks and Stones – which explores bullying, aggression and respectful relationships.
These services provide a place to find courage, hope and to rebuild. Domestic violence homicides are largely preventable, which makes the work of our services truly life saving.
