THE DAISY CENTRE

Symbolic of hope and new beginnings, the Daisy Centre provides services to women experiencing domestic and family violence. It is a physical and virtual, safe place providing tailored services meeting the individual needs of clients at their level of comfort.

Operated by Mary’s House Services, the Daisy Centre is  supported by the generosity of the community and to date is the only domestic violence service in NSW where clients can access continuous support while they navigate options before, during and after escaping a domestic violence situation.

SUPPORTING MORE WOMEN

Many women experiencing domestic violence do not know how to escape. The Daisy Centre, is the ideal starting point. Women can come for information and advice, attend psychoeducational programs, or simply use a phone or computer in private.

PROFESSIONAL SERVICES

The Daisy Centre is staffed by qualified social workers who are experienced working in the area of domestic violence and who work alongside women and support them to make their own choices. By providing information and advice, they help clients regain their own agency (often taken away by their abuser) and understand the likely or possible implications and consequences of their decisions. Caseworkers refer clients to legal, financial and other professional services as needed and work with them to develop a safety plan. Daisy Centre staff are here to support women as they navigate through any or all stages of the journey out of an abusive relationship to live safely, free of violence and abuse.

ONGOING SUPPORT

Domestic violence is extremely traumatic and many clients need on-going psychological support and help to move on and rebuild confidence and self-esteem after they have moved on.

The Daisy Centre continues to support women from Mary’s House refuge or any other domestic violence circumstances as they rebuild their lives. It provides a range of therapeutic support services such as counselling, trauma-informed group therapy, and wellbeing services such as trauma-informed exercise and evidence-based programs for personal safety, growth & development. The Daisy Centre also provides childcare for women attending programs.
