Domestic Violence Survivors mentoring fellow survivors who are creating a new chapter in their lives.
Who do we work with?
Broken to Brilliant works with survivors after the initial crisis and immediate resettlement time.
During their journey of recovery, we empower survivors to rebuild their new chapter in life.
Broken to Brilliant’s goal is to reduce the long-term impact of domestic violence by increasing financial independence, decreasing distress, increasing opportunities through education, life-skills training, and social support networks and supporting the rebuilding efforts of those who have experienced domestic violence.
The World Health Organisation has found that 35% of women worldwide have experienced either intimate partner violence or non-partner sexual violence in their lifetime, and 38% of murders of women are committed by an intimate partner.
Men are more likely to experience violence from strangers and in a public place; women are most likely to know the perpetrator (often their current or a previous partner) and the violence usually takes place in their home. One in six Australian women and one in 19 men have been subjected to physical and/or sexual violence (Australian Institute of Health and Welfare).
Overall we help victims rebuild and empower their lives and support survivors to become independent, active members of their community and not return to violence.
