Cawarra Women's Refuge
Family and Child Health Worker:
Jan 2012 - Dec 2012
The Cawarra Women's Refuge Aboriginal Corporation provides support for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and children who are escaping or experiencing domestic violence.
Cawarra provides culturally safe, confidential accommodation and assistance programs designed to empower clients and help them live a safe and normal life. Women can phone the refuge for advice and support at any time, 24 hours a day.
The support of the LUCRF Super Community Program has allowed Cawarra to recruit an additional Aboriginal family support worker and a part-time visiting psychologist to continue its Family and Child Health Worker Program.
The support expanded Cawarra’s capacity to deliver its broad range of support services to those who are most vulnerable, including providing adequate crisis care, case management services, disability services, pregnancy support and specialist counselling services.
