About this project

The Salvation Army supports thousands of people across Australia each year who have experienced, or are at risk of family violence. Safe housing is a key need for victim-survivors of family violence, and The Salvation Army provides a range of emergency and medium-term accommodation with support to help people find safety, recover and move on with their lives.

A strategy for the future

The Salvation Army has identified it as a priority to further develop and modernise its property portfolio, to better meet the needs of those it supports. Lirata is working closely with TSA's senior family violence stream managers and other key stakeholders across Australia to develop a national family violence property strategy, and an accompanying New South Wales action plan.

The methodology includes a review of relevant literature and sector policy documentation, meetings and workshops with a range of stakeholders, and analysis of a range of service data and population data to identify the characteristics and needs of people who require family violence support. The project also includes consideration of currently unmet needs, and of contemporary best practice models for provision of accommodation with support.

The strategy and action plan will guide the future development and provision of accommodation by The Salvation Army for people experiencing family violence across Australia.
