A community free from family violence, where everyone feels safe.
Counselling and Support Groups
The EDVOS Counselling program is available as no/low cost program for women and children who access EDVOS. The family violence counsellor provides a holistic service that includes one-to-one counselling, therapeutic groups, parent-child therapy. This takes a strengths-based, client-centred approach in a safe, supportive environment.
EDVOS provides information on and referrals to a number of counselling services in the eastern metropolitan region.
Women are able to refer directly into a program, or via EDVOS intake/referral. This includes a partnership with the Australian Childhood Foundation whereby a predetermined number of therapeutic sessions for children are available through the Flexible Support Package program.
