The support of generous individuals like you helps us create change for the better in local communities.

With your help we ensured that over 18,000 people last year received the help they needed to build a better life for themselves and their families.

Why we need your help

  • Domestic violence affects around 1 in 3 Australian women. It's the leading contributor to death, disability and illness in women aged 15 to 44 - more than any of the well-known high risk factors such as smoking, high blood pressure or obesity.
  • In Victoria, 4393 young people aged 12 to 18 were homeless on census night 2011.
  • One in five households survives on less than $338 per week.
  • Each day there are over 5,000 Victorian children who can't live safely in their own home.

What can your support provide?

  • safe refuge for women and children fleeing domestic violence
  • books and uniforms for young people whose families can't afford them
  • pathways out of prostitution for women
  • research into the needs of disadvantaged communities and advocacy to create lasting change.
