Staying Home Leaving Violence

Women who want to escape a violent relationship at home often think leaving is their only choice.  But if you want to stay, we can help. 

Staying Home Leaving Violence works with the police and local community to help women leave violence and stay safely at home. 

We will support you through the separation, help with the legal and police matters, and help make your home and family safer. 

Who we can work with:

  • Women who are 18 years and over
  • Who live in the Tamworth or Inverell local government areas
  • Who have separated from a violent partner
  • Who are in stable accommodation

What can assist women to stay safely in their home or a home of their choice by:

  • Assisting with a safety plan
  • Conducting a safety audit of the residential property
  • Installing safety upgrades - brokerage  funds to cover some of the costs
  • Court support  and advocacy - Apprehended Domestic Violence Orders and Family Law Matters
  • Information and referrals to other services
  • Referral to counselling
  • Support to continue to live free from violence

We work with families in a case management role for up to 12 months and longer if need be.
