Health and wellbeing programs
Funded by donations, fundraising events and grants, Starick offers a range of services and programs that improve the lives of the women and children using our service.
These non-core services often relate to the emotional wellness of the families we support.
The Lived Experience program
Our Lived Experience is a program of free workshops for women who have experienced family and domestic violence to share their stories and gain confidence in public speaking.
You don't have to be a Starick client to attend the workshops.
Yoga for trauma
Yoga classes are currently held for one hour on a weekly basis at both refuges.
The service is provided by a professional yoga teacher who not only gives her time but has also raised money through fund raising. These funds have allowed us to purchase yoga mats for the women to take with them when leaving the refuge.
