Domestic Violence is a national crisis. In Australia, violence perpetrated by an intimate partner is the cause of more illness, disability and death than any other factor for women aged 25-44. For children in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs, the damage is profound.
Hope and Heal provides weekend residential retreats for women who are escaping or have left violent relationships.
Creating a safe, nurturing environment allows self-care and healing for survivors. Hope and Heal brings together leading experts in wellbeing, finance, trauma, fitness, nutrition, healing, relationships and communication to empower and educate.
Friendships are made and participants connected to further support services – increasing their ongoing safety and independence.
