Keeping Women Safe

Read a testimonial from one of our clients on our Staying Home Leaving Violence Service.

April 4, 2024

A client was referred to our  Staying Home Leaving Violence (SHLV) program in May 2023 due to domestic violence assessed as being ‘Serious Threat’.

Throughout the nine months the client was supported, she became more receptive to counselling, actively engaging in sessions and building a positive rapport with her counsellor.

She expressed feeling more open to and confident in reporting to Police should further incidences occur.

She stated she was more aware of supports available which she had previously not known were there, was confident in referring herself in the future if needed and had a better understanding of the court system and no longer felt she needed a support person to attend appointments and access supports.

When closing the file, the client became emotional stating “it is sad, you supported me through a pivotal, scary part of my life … you were there for me through such a bad part of my life and that made it good”, “you supported when there was no one else to do it and I can’t thank you enough for that”. 

We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the lands, skies and waterways in which we live and work, the Gadigal, Cabrogal, Darug and Eora people. We pay our respects to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander clients, partners and community leaders.
