Staying Home, Leaving Violence

Staying Home, Leaving Violence is a program funded by Community Services (formerly DoCS). The aim of the program is to assist women who have experienced domestic violence to remain safely in their own homes.

SHLV enables domestic and family violence victims to remain separated from a violent partner by addressing common barriers to leaving violent relationships, namely: stable accommodation, establishment and maintenance of support networks and secure employment and education/childcare for women and their children.

SHLV Caseworkers work closely with victims of violence to achieve the best outcomes for women and children who wish to remain at home but to escape family violence.

SHLV Caseworkers are based at both Fairfield and Liverpool to manage the program.
