In Australia, domestic and family violence is the biggest social injustice that we are confronted with. It affects everyone – all races, religions and social classes.
RizeUp’s programmes promote women’s independence and decision-making in public life and relationships, which is a key outcome to preventing domestic violence. RizeUp works to shift attitudes, perceptions and challenge societal norms in Australia which have as a by-product created a toxic and unhealthy environment.
The RizeUp mission is to drive awareness of domestic and family violence within society by generating life-changing, practical support for the families affected, giving them the hope and empowerment to move on to a life free from violence.
To do this, they bring communities together, facilitate volunteers, and make real, far-reaching and practical contributions to these families.
