Safe as Houses is a specialised program that aims to prevent homelessness for women and children affected by family and domestic violence.
Please note that at the end of 2018 this program’s funding is not renewed. Accordingly we are currently not accepting new clients but will continue to provide one off assistance and legal advice up until December 2018.
By working in partnership with Tenancy WA and Street Law WA we together provide integrated legal and support services to resolve the complex tangle of issues family violence tends to create. Those issues can include:
- family law
- child support
- child protection
- injuries compensation
- criminal proceedings
- business and employment
How does it work?
Often a woman affected by family violence has to access a variety of services for help with a whole raft of legal and practical issues. By providing a support worker who uses an integrated case managed approach, Safe as Houses provides a more efficient, holistic and ultimately more effective way to resolve issues.
Supported by partnerships with UnitingCare West, the Women’s Council for Domestic and Family Violence Services WA and King Edward Memorial Hospital, Safe as Houses is funded through the Criminal Property Confiscation Grants program and Lotterywest until December 2018.
