Welcome to Neighbours Friends and Families

Neighbours, Friends and Families is a public education campaign to raise awareness of the signs of woman abuse so that those close to an at-risk woman
or an abusive man can help. It engages the power of everyday relationships to
help keep women and their children safe. 

Research Briefs

Neighbours, Friends and Family research briefs aim to educate and inform others about gender-based violence and abuse against women. The reports will be easily available online and written in clear language that ensures they are accessible to the general public. Our aim is to both educate and inspire action so that readers understand we all have a role to play in ending violence against women. View briefs here.

Shelters and women’s advocacy centres are working at maximum capacities in many cities, with some also lacking resources and support. Feelings of fear and loneliness can be common.
