Safer in the Home

Safer in the Home

The National Safer in the Home Program supports women victim survivors of family violence to access basic home security upgrades and technology interventions so that they can live safe from violence.

Safer in the Home is available to women with or without accompanying children throughout Australia where the current level of risk is ‘low’.

The program aims to minimise the social and economic consequences of escaping family violence that may occur when forced to leave the family home, such as homelessness, disconnection from community, unemployment, and disruption to children’s schooling.

Safer in the Home recognises that it should ALWAYS be a woman’s right to safely remain in the home of her choice and stay connected with her community.
