Community Welfare Program
Taking a step closer to tackling Domestic and Family Violence, one of the greatest challenges faced by the Australian Muslim community.
Domestic Violence is one of the greatest challenges in the general community as well as in the Muslim community which is often hidden or denied. Every single day, vulnerable Muslims continue to suffer silently from social, emotional, financial, physical and sexual abuse by family members they trust while living in a toxic home environment. Those who are fortunate enough to escape these abusive relationships find themselves dealing with trauma, isolation, stigmatisation, and financial hardships while barely supporting themselves. Although the victims are often women and children, it is important to acknowledge that men too are victims of domestic violence.
Through this program, we aim to support the victims of domestic violence by providing the right services and resources for their needs. We believe supporting domestic violence victims and helping them grow from their trauma will allow them to flourish as contributing individuals of the Australia Muslim community.
The Healing Forward program is to raise awareness, assist survivors of domestic and family violence, which includes both men & women as well as children under their care that they simply do not have the means to provide for. This is not limited to financial means but can also be with regards to assistance in various aspects of living through services such as counselling, mentoring, community care, support activities for youth and children, and more.
Within the program, we have created the 'Healing Forward with Mawwaddah and Rahmah' project where we offer relationship counselling and support to married individuals. We also offer a range of support services through the 'Healing Forward with Strength and Courage' for men and women moving forward after an abusive relationship.
If you are someone, or know someone, who is or has been a victim of family and domestic violence, please submit your application and find out how we can assist you.
The application and validation process is done by the NZF Team with confidentiality. Any information given will only be used to determine the best way we can help you.
