Women’s Safety Services of Central Australia (WoSSCA) is a not-for-profit, non-government organisation that operates on a feminist framework and is committed to assisting and enabling women and children experiencing domestic, family and sexual violence.

We acknowledge the traditional owners and custodians of the land we work on, as the first people of this country. We pay our respects to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander elders past, present and emerging.

Our vision is for greater safety, respect and dignity for all women and their children in Central Australia.

URBAN OUTREACH

Our Urban Outreach Team can help you if you live in Alice Springs. They can come to you, or you can come and talk to them at the Outreach office.

 

The Outreach Program can help you if you are:

  • A woman who was staying at the shelter but has gone home and would still like support.

  • A woman who has not been staying at the shelter but would like to talk with someone.

  • A woman who feels unsafe, is homeless, or sleeping rough.

We can have a cup of tea and talk together, or support you through life changes as they are happening. At different times during difficult relationships, the support you need might be different – sometimes you may need a lot and sometimes not as much. The Outreach Team is there for you as little, or as much as you need.

 

The Outreach Program was started a long time ago and over the past decade, as more funding became available, it became two teams. The Urban Outreach Team supports you if you live in Alice Springs and the Remote Outreach Team supports you if you live in remote communities in Central Australia and the tri-state area of Western Australia, South Australia and Queensland. 

 

Both the Urban and Remote Teams work closely with other services in Alice Springs, to provide a strong support network to women experiencing domestic, family and sexual violence. The Outreach Program believes in early intervention - working with women and their children to help you stay safe.

The Outreach Team has a private office in the centre of Alice Springs where women are welcome to drop in any time between 9am and 4pm weekdays. If you live in Alice Springs, but can’t visit our Outreach office, let us know and someone from the Urban Outreach Team can come to visit you. If you don’t live in town, the Remote Outreach Team can help you.

If you are a local service provider or health worker, you can also complete this referral form to make sure women get the support they need.   

 

The Outreach Program is free for all women and their children, who are experiencing domestic, family or sexual violence. If you need help or support call us on (08) 8953 7648.
