Domestic Violence

At least 23% of Austraian women have survived instances of domestic/ family violence; the Australian Bureau of Statistics puts the number at 2.2 million women. Family violence occurs when individuals misuse their power within an intimate relationship. Abuse can be physical, sexual, psychological, verbal, social and financial. The vast majority of perpetuatrors are male.

Each year The Salvation Army assists more than 2000 women who have survived family violence. Below is how we assist in the Northern Territory.

Catherine Booth House

Catherine Booth House is Darwin’s safe refuge for women who are being affected by domestic and family violence.

Staff members there support these women through crisis accommodation and intensive case management. They have also been working especially hard to ensure that there is more awareness surrounding the impact of Domestic and Family violence in the NT.

In recent weeks Catherine Booth House have had several success stories in which they have enabled women to walk away from domestic violence to become survivors, not victims. Now, they are intent on restoring their clients self-esteem through engaging programs that they hope will return them to an independence they had previously lost.
