Foothills Domestic Violence Peer Support Group - Connection form
Foothills Domestic Violence Peer Support Group can offer peer support in various ways. This form will help us understand the best ways we can support you.
We will keep your information private at all times and will only contact you at your request and on your terms.
Our group can offer phone, email and face-to-face connection. We also use password protected Zoom meetings for those unwell or unable to attend meetings in person. We can also organise home-cooked meals, groceries and fresh produce delivered to you free through Community Casseroles and free online art groups.
This group is a support space for mothers who have experienced domestic violence who reside in the Dandenong Ranges and surrounds with support for as long as you need it. We are a peer-run group, sharing connection and understanding through knowing what it's like and having a lived experience of domestic and family violence. Our peer support women have training in Intentional Peer Support.
