Zonta House was provided a six month grant by Lotterywest in response to the increased need for outreach domestic violence services throughout the period of COVID-19. The Outreach program provides FDV specialist support to women in the South-east corridor of Perth. The program works with women who are residing separately from their perpetrators as well as with women who are residing with perpetrators.
Women are provided with the opportunity to be supported through brief intervention and/or case management support. Case management includes risk assessment, safety planning, support to attend appointments, court hearings and ongoing emotional support as well as support with referrals and advocacy to external services.
The Outreach Support Coordinator is based at the Fremantle/ Rockingham Family Support Network one day per week, providing family violence support to the intake, assessment and case management teams. This program now operates as part of the South-East Mobile Outreach program in a consortium arrangement with Lucy Saw Centre and Ovis across three Perth metropolitan areas.

Funding is currently provided by Lotterywest and the Lucy Saw Centre through the Department of Communities. The program has been operating since 2020.
