As an organisation, we are working towards a White Ribbon Workplace Accreditation and we are committed to taking active steps to prevent and respond to violence against women.

We are currently Increasing our knowledge and skills in this area, which is one of the steps we can take. Every new employee that starts working at the Housing Trust will complete a domestic violence training session, on how to identify and respond to domestic violence situations.

We have a dedicated Community Development Worker that will continue to drive this project and to build strong relationships or partnerships with support services throughout our local community.

If you would like to know more on this topic, please contact our office on 4254 1166 or email info@housingtrust.org.au
