The recovery model of intervention aims to build victim-survivors’ resilience, wellbeing, individualised supports and access to recovery services. This provides a protective factor against potential future experiences of domestic and/or family violence. The ideal of the program is for victim-survivors to feel psychologically and physically safer at program exit.

Case management periods are typically around 6 to 12 weeks with intensive one-on-one engagement. The current program model is a pilot and for this reason, referrals to the program are limited to victim-survivors being referred by a South Australian specialist Domestic and Family Violence service.

The program is suitable for victim-survivors who are not experiencing a crisis. Ideally, victim-survivors who are moving on from a Domestic and Family Violence case management service, including those in supportive or transitional housing, are suited to the program.

This program can provide:

  • Referrals to specialist domestic and family violence trauma counsellors.
  • Connections to specialist therapeutic or domestic and family violence educational groups.
  • Referrals to other specialist services
  • Assistance to produce a comprehensive safety plan
