Using a feminist framework that acknowledges a gendered analysis of domestic violence, West Connect Domestic Violence Services aims to provide a holistic response to women with and without accompanying children who are experiencing domestic and family violence and related homelessness, emphasising the principles of empowerment, self-determination and an acknowledgement of the dynamics of domestic violence in a political and social context.
We do this through the provision of direct support, safe accommodation and housing options and programs that aim to create a non-violent community where women and children, regardless of their social and cultural background, age and sexual orientation, will have access to the knowledge and supports needed to take control over their own lives. West Connect Domestic Violence Services is guided by principles of social justice and equality.
