The Women’s Resilience Centre is a place of hope, healing and recovery for women who have experienced domestic abuse, trauma and violence. The first of its kind in Australia, the program is outcomes-focused and seeks to change the legacies of women and their families, and continue their healing and recovery. We offer both residential accommodation for up to 12 months and also a day program for day attendees. Participation in the clinical resilience program is not compulsory but is encouraged. A sound mentoring and peer to peer support program will be provided also.
In Australia there is a gap between medium-term residential support after crisis care. Community housing or rentals are difficult to secure for women and their children who have suffered domestic abuse. The Women’s Resilience Centre provides a consistent, evidence-based clinical program combined with a living skills program, giving women a fresh charter and hope. Thus, we have to come together with a common charter to improve the current services available to support this terrible crisis in our beautiful country.
There are millions of women all over Australia struggling to overcome this unwarranted abuse, and many of them will not succeed. It’s time we do something to change the circumstances and support these women in need.
