This study engaged with five different types of social and geographical locations at sites in South Australia and Western Australia to explore how isolation affects different women’s abilities to seek assistance and cope with experiences of domestic violence.
This research project provided a national mapping and meta-evaluation of the key features of “safe at home” programs. “Safe at home” programs enhance safety and prevent homelessness for women and their children who have experienced domestic and family violence.
This state of knowledge paper discusses the history and development of "safe at home" approaches, and the corresponding policy and practice context. It outlines current safe at home approaches in Australia and overseas and common program elements across jurisdictions.
