A purpose driven organisation

We are structured into three divisions, each playing an important
role in how we address family violence.

Client Services

Client Services delivers programs for outreach services and therapeutic recovery programs for women and children; young women’s housing programs; programs for men who use violence including behaviour change and case management.

Prevention and Development

The Prevention and Development team has a range of programs and projects to support organisational workforce capacity building with a key focus on training, education, research, advocacy and prevention.


Operations is responsible for human resources, financial management, occupational health and safety, quality assurance and administrative support to the organisation..
