Opening the Doors

A free, 8-session support group for women who have experienced family violence and would like to join with other women to express themselves as well as regain their sense of self through learning, sharing, connecting and creating.

In this program there will be a chance to talk about your experiences and to learn from others and from educational material including:

  • legal information and practical resources
  • understanding the effects of family violence on families
  • strengthening self esteem.

The group also involves practical activities, mindfulness, and conversations about shared experiences, to support your healing and help you to feel more empowered.

Women who have been involved in similar groups have found that it is a helpful way to learn more about their rights and support options, and to rebuild their identity and begin to heal.

‘I have never known such kindness and support [as I have in this group].
I feel very good about my life and strong for my children now.’
