End of Financial Year Giving

End of Financial Year Giving for Women and Children escaping Domestic and Family Violence

Every night across Australia over 56,000 women are homeless and over 220 women are turned away from crisis services when they need accommodation. More than two thirds of these women have dependent children with them.*

It doesn’t matter if she is 7 or 77, we walk beside her every single day and now more than ever before, we need your end of year gift.

Qualitative research has shown that children exposed to family, domestic and sexual violence can experience long-term effects on their development and have increased risk of mental health issues, and behavioural and learning difficulties.**

Currently, we support over 400 women and children shelters across our existing shelter network of seven shelters. With two new shelters in the pipeline for 2020-2021, we will increase that support by over 150 women and children who find themselves homeless per annum.

Walk Beside us NOW so that we can continue to deliver services to our network.
