Why you should work with us

We are your workplace partner against domestic violence.

Partnering with Australian businesses since 2001, our proven Workplace Prevention Program empowers and educates businesses to recognise the signs of domestic violence, respond appropriately and refer employees affected to professionals who can help.

There is growing momentum in the community to address domestic and family violence, and our aim is to make sure workplaces have in place strategies to raise awareness and support their staff.

Acknowledging that two thirds of women experiencing domestic violence are employed, we recognise that business and industry have a role in social change and that together we can create responsive workplaces and become part of a ‘whole of community’ solution.
