"It's about having control bad, freedom from fear." An evaluation of the Shine safe@home for victims/survivors of domestic violence.
Victims/survivors of domestic violence who decide to separate or escape from their violent partner are commonly expected to leave their homes and live elsewhere in order to be safe. A consequence is that women and their children can experience homelessness. The Shine safe@home programme was designed to assist women and their children to remain in their own homes. It involves an interagency approach to home security, advocacy and police intervention. This project involved a comprehensive evaluation of the effectiveness of this programme, in terms of women's and children's safety, their ability to remain in their own homes, and the quality of life for them and their children.
