Starick is a charity supporting women and children escaping domestic and family violence, predominantly in Perth's south-eastern metropolitan region.
Our core services are funded by the Department of Communities and Lotterywest:
- Two refuges in Perth's south east metropolitan region offering short term accommodation for and support to women and their children.
- Outreach services for women and children experiencing domestic and family violence who are not living in our refuges. These services include counselling and domestic violence advocate support at Armadale and Cannington police stations. Our outreach workers also offer transitional housing support for women and their children moving out of our refuges and into the wider community, and our Safe at Home program, which assists women and children to stay safely in their homes after an incident of domestic and family violence. Our outreach services are managed from our office at Community Lotteries House, 2232 Albany Highway, Gosnells.
In addition to these core services, we manage a Respectful Relationships Teaching Support Program.
We also offer our clients a range of other health and wellbeing services and programs for which we received no government funding.
We are passionate about these other services and programs because they assist women to rebuild and live independently after escaping family and domestic violence.
These other services and programs are only possible through our own fundraising efforts, donations and in-kind support from individuals, community organisations and corporate support.
