This team has identified everyone deserves to feel safe in their own home. They wanted to create an accessible and informative resource that people can engage with and learn from.
Safe House is a digital resource that includes valuable information from those being subject to violence in the home, or those who may know someone in this position. Safe House includes helpful information, strategies and helplines. It is an app that is available to anyone and will be found online. It will be a safe space for those who are seeking help or advice.
To trial this idea in the Warrnambool community, the team will run a scaled-back version of the resource in which is a digital PDF that will share stories of domestic violence survivors and it’s main aim will be for young people to understand what domestic violence is and the strategies that may keep them safe. It will be developed in collaboration with a domestic violence service provider.
