Our outreach programme aims to provide more support services to other women and children in the community who may or may not have accessed a refuge service but who are currently or have previously experienced family and domestic violence.
A monthly Social Group is taking place in partnership with the local Childcare Centre, providing an opportunity for women and children to spend time together and form their own friendships and support networks.
The group is attended by experienced family and domestic violence workers who provide information and referrals as required.
Over time, women are encouraged to take more ownership of the programme and the activities that we do.
Orana House self funds these services and would like to grow them and support more women and children in the community.
