What does it take?

Seven times

We've heard it takes on average seven attempts to leave a domestic violence relationship (i). The majority of domestic violence murders committed by abusive partners occur after an attempt to terminate the abusive relationship (ii).

Could you image the social impact we would create if we were able to reduce the average number of attempts to just six?

There's a myriad of reasons why someone returns to an abusive partner. To try and solve this problem we started researching. Martin et al. (2000) recognised that difficulties in relocation, legal issues, sharing child custody, termination of the emotional connection with the abuser, and disrupted social networks, placed the victim at higher risk of returning to the relationship.

Patzel (2006) reported that fear of being alone and a lack of support from family and friends reduced a woman's ability to leave the relationship. Griffith et al. (2016) states the number one reason for returning to a domestic violence abuser is emotional attachment.

There are many factors we cannot influence, but there are also factors we absolutely can!

Chang et al. (2010) found that one of the most important factors that led women to successfully leave their abusers was the realisation they had access to resources and support from others.

Our SOLUTION is to increase the resources offered to domestic violence survivors through our EMPLOYMENT, EMPOWERMENT and community ENGAGEMENT programs. We have lots of work to do, but after some extensive research and discussion with service providers, we are up for the challenge.

We're going to need your help.

Two Good Dinner

Engagement - Two Good dinner and post it notes for the fridge

We're working on ways to demonstrate more community support to DV survivors.

We can't wait to tell you about our Two Good dinner coming up in May!

To put it simply; a beautiful meal for 50 people. 25 seats for women and caseworkers from the safe houses, and 25 seats for our Two Good community. The aim is to share a meal and show support so keep an eye on the newsletter for more information.

Until then, when you order a Two Good lunch you will have the option to write a note of support to the women in the safe houses that receive our meal donations.

You can write a few words of encouragement or support via the online order form once you've selected your lunch. We will print each message and give to refuge managers to stick on their safe house fridges.

Contact us if you know of other ways to show support
