Safety or shelter?

What would you choose?

Cass and her children had to leave their home three times to escape a violent partner. They entered a refuge, stayed with family, but continued to feel unsafe as long-term housing was not available to them.

No one should be forced to choose between violence and homelessness.

But during Australia’s worst housing crisis in living memory, too many women are.

Cass had nowhere to turn after fleeing a violent relationship with her children.

Only 3% of women experiencing domestic violence receive the long-term housing they need.

Safe, affordable and accessible social housing is key to ending violence against women and children.
