  1. Project #1: Prison Network

    Prison Network has been providing support to women in Victorian prisons, and their families, for over 75 years. Prison Network journeys with women in and beyond prison, providing the support and courage they need to navigate positive pathways and create change. For women who have often experienced life long hardship Prison Network aims to be a source of hope, dignity and purpose, ultimately reducing recidivism and inter-generational cycles of criminal activity and poverty.

  2. Project #2: Her Space

    HerSpace is a not-for-profit organisation offering free wellbeing and mental health recovery services to women survivors (16yrs and over) of exploitation in Australia. Exploitation (also known as modern slavery) includes all forms of sexual exploitation, human trafficking, slavery, servitude, forced labour, debt bondage, deceptive recruitment for labour and forced marriage.

    3 arms of service:
    1. Wellbeing & mental health recovery services that involve individual and group counselling for women survivors and holistic support to address other practical needs.
    2. Education, training & advisory on recognising and understanding the issues and impacts of exploitation in Australia and best practice therapeutic support for survivors.
    3. Research and advocacy services offering evidence on exploitation and best practice support for survivors. There is a global gap in research on therapeutic support for women survivors of exploitation that must be addressed.
