Centacare provides Safe at Home services for women and children who are at risk of homelessness because of family and domestic violence.
We assist clients to remain in their home, or a home of their choosing, when it is safe to do so. This means they can continue to access familiar community support networks, such as workplaces and school, which can influence coping and help-seeking decisions.
Safe at Home supports women through risk assessments, safety planning and home security audits. Security measures vary due to individual circumstances but can include installation of locks, sensor lights and security screens.
Supported by the Australian Government, the initiative is offered in addition to Centacare’s regional specialist domestic violence and homelessness services which are part of the state-wide SA Domestic and Family Violence Alliance.
Who: Women and their children who are leaving an abusive relationship who wish to stay safely in their family home.
Where: The initiative operates across Centacare’s Southern Country Domestic Violence Service.
How: For a confidential assessment, please phone Safe at Home 1800 800 098 or contact your nearest Centacare service direct.
