What it’s like in refuge
Women’s Health West provides shelter for women and their children escaping family violence when it’s not safe for them to live in their own home. These are the words of Joyce who stayed with us recently.
It was a blessing to be in the hands of such a loving, caring, courageous, compassionate, respectful, understanding organisation. From my point of view, they are in an important role of empowering both women and children who have been living in family violence. It is an individual woman’s responsibility to call out for help once they have experienced some form of violence because it is not acceptable to live in violence.
