Engender Equality (232588)

Service: Engender Equality was formerly known as SHE (Support, Help and Empowerment). SHE has operated as a not-for-profit specialist family violence service since 1989.

Family violence has received growing attention in the mainstream media, as well as from community campaigns and in government policy. There has been an increased focus on primary prevention as an important activity to reduce family violence. In addition, family violence has shifted to now be considered a whole of community issue. We are now expected to see men who have been subjected to violent and abusive behaviours and we are seeing diverse communities wanting to be a part of primary prevention efforts.

To reflect this changing landscape, we have adopted the new name, Engender Equality (Engender for short).

The name, Engender Equality, promotes the need to address the primary drivers of family violence.

The new name does not affect the current service provision or frameworks.

Engender Equality is a non-profit organisation that provides free and confidential counselling and support for women who are currently experiencing or have experienced abuse in an intimate relationship.
