Many women and children flee family violence with just the clothes on their backs.

safe steps Family Violence Centre help women and children who come to us in crisis, enabling them to escape and begin a life away from violence.  As well as providing emergency accommodation, we will assist them with the necessities as they begin a new chapter.

We welcome donations from individuals, community groups and organisations which assist us in helping the women who come to us.

What we accept:

Due to resource and storage limitations, we are currently unable to accept donations of clothes, food and toiletries.

We welcome the donation of gift cards which, enable us to empower the women, many now able to purchase what they need for the first time.  Gift cards also offer the flexibility to be used for schoolbooks and uniforms as the women strive to create a safe future for their children.

Preferred gift cards include Target, Big W, Kmart, Woolworths and Coles supermarkets as well as Telstra and Optus pre-paid phone cards and myki cards.
