“RizeUp is about confronting domestic violence as
the human rights violation it is and connecting the
broader community with creating better outcomes
for the affected families.”
Nicolle Edwards, CEO of RizeUp
As of June 2019, RizeUp has provided valuable practical support for 718 Australian families and the agencies who have referred them to the organisation. RizeUp has created fully furnished homes for families fleeing domestic and family violence. Over 1,000 children have been supported through the RizeUp program.
Their mission is to work in partnership with domestic violence services to enhance the service options that they can offer and provide to women and families that have experienced domestic violence. RizeUp only work through a referral basis, accepting referrals from specialist domestic violence services including refuges for clients that are actively engaged with the service. RizeUp believe it is essential to ensure the families are linked with the services in order to receive the vital wraparound support required to break the cycle of violence and to increase their safety and the sustainability of their decision to leave the abusive relationship.
