It was an honour to MC the Safe Steps family Violence response centre’s Safetea at Melbourne’s RACV club.
Women and children in Victoria have been supported by the good people at Safe Steps for decades.
In the lead up to this event I discovered some women are still in the dark about the good work they do so here’s a quick rundown.
WHAT IS SAFESTEPS?
SafeSteps is Victoria’s 24/7 family violence response service.
It is on the frontline and works towards a community free from family violence through education and social change initiatives.
Trained professionals help families recover from trauma.
Last financial year Safe Steps took 91,057 calls for help to its 24/7 response phone lines.v
If you or someone you know is currently experiencing family violence here’s what you can do:
Call the 24/7 safe steps family violence response phone line on 1800 015 188.
If you cannot safely call the 24/7 phone line, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and a support worker will reply to you ASAP.
If you have been threatened or you are fearful for yourself, a child or a family member – call 000.
Engaging Women is honoured to be able to share Safe Steps good work with our wonderful community.
Founder Martine Harte is looking forward to hosting the 2018 ‘safeTea’ for Women at the RACV Club on Sunday 24th June, 2018.
If you cannot attend please consider donating to Safe Steps so they can continue their vital work for women and children.
