ABOUT FRIENDS WITH DIGNITY
Friends with Dignity is a national not-for profit charity organisation that assists families and individuals displaced by Domestic and Family Violence.
Built on the foundation that change is effected through community engagement, our programs encourage individuals, groups and organizations to actively initiate change by providing tangible ways in which we can all Step Up, Speak Out and Support.
We are 100% self funded and run by a dedicated team of passionate Volunteers, we do not charge any of the Victims we assist or the Refuges / Supporting Organisations referring their Clients to us; all of our Programs are gifted unconditionally.
In partnership with our Refuge and DV Services network we create Sanctuaries for people who have escaped domestic violence and are ready to leave refuges.
All of our Sanctuaries are fully furnished with donated goods – some pre-loved and others purchased new by generous donors.
Our primary goal is to create a safe, welcoming home for survivors of domestic violence to rebuild their lives in a sustainable and supported way.
An entrusted Partner to those on the ‘front line’, we work not in competition, but alongside these and other organizations, recognizing that our mutual goal is to reduce domestic and family violence.
