We'd like to thank Westpac who have again this year supported our organisation through their Community Grants Program.

This funding will allow us to continue offering our unique "Pathway for Change" 6 week Domestic Violence support and education program for mothers who have been impacted by domestic violence.

The course, delivered by our qualified Family Casework specialists, provides support and education for women who have experienced fear and suffered abuse such as intimidation, violence, isolation and coercive control. It primarily focusses on the cycle of violence, the effects of violence on herself and her children and most importantly, safety planning for herself and her child.

Women who participate in this group also receive emotional and practical support delivered by SSFS caseworkers - creating a support network where real change happens.

As always, the SSFS team are working hard to keep women and children in our community safe.
