B2FTDP Aboriginal woman and child

Safer Pathways for Women and Children is a Zonta House initiative working in collaboration with the Housing Authority.

We provide support to women and their children who are Housing Authority tenants residing in the catchment area of the Cannington and Victoria Park offices.

The service aims to reduce the impact of Family and Domestic Violence and promote safety for women and children. Safer Pathways provides intensive and specialised case management to women on an outreach basis over a 12 week period.

Warm referrals can be made if the clients have a Housing Authority tenancy in the catchment areas.

In May 2018, Safer Pathways was announced as a finalist in the WACOSS Community Services Excellence Awards for a medium sized organisation.

The service has supported women to feel safer in their homes through the provision of informal counselling, safety planning, support to attend court and obtain violence restraining orders, referrals to domestic violence counselling and other local support services, installation of household security devises, liaison and advocacy with existing agencies including child protection and family support and the Housing Authority.
