In Victoria, 88% of Aboriginal children in out-of-home care are there because of family violence. Indigenous women make up 10% of people seeking homelessness services in Victoria, despite being less than 2% of the population.
Djirra aims to combat these statistics. They run programs and workshops throughout the year focused on the prevention of family violence through counselling, and prioritising culture and well-being.
To be involved with Djirra, you can join them at one of their events, become a part of their team, volunteer, or become a member. Visit their website to find out more!
