Comprehensive personalised home risk and safety assessments provided by experienced, licensed professional assessors in all states and territories. Enabling people experiencing violence and abuse or family separation to feel safe and able to go about their daily lives with confidence with a focus upon reducing further risk and optimising safety. We are able to provide you or your client with enhanced safety and peace of mind through an individualised service, with interventions tailored to their circumstances. Our service is available across Australia including metropolitan, regional and remote areas.
Our research and first-hand experience shows that relationship breakdowns and separations are a time of increased risk of family violence, both physical and emotional or psychological with abuse via technology increasingly commonplace.
Upon submitting a service request or via referral to our service, we start with a comprehensive risk and safety assessment in consultation with you or your client. We keep you advised throughout our process. Our assessments involve the client and consider individual risk and safety from a range of different perspectives including home, personal and technology. Depending upon what you or your client identify, we can provide a particular focus on one area of risk and safety or a combination of areas.
We develop a risk and safety report that recommends a set of tailored interventions to reduce risk and optimise safety for your client. We let you know the approximate cost of the recommended interventions so that you or a referrer can secure the appropriate funding for the interventions you approve. Once you have secured funding, we proceed to organise until all interventions have been put in place.
Four out five of our clients that are experiencing Domestic or Family Violence in the home are also victims of Technology-Facilitated Abuse. Our On-site Phone Scan or Remote Technology Assessments offer a comprehensive, personalised assessment and inspection of the client’s personal and home smart devices and laptop/s. Where there are accompanying children with smart devices we strongly recommend that this is part of the assessment.
We have completed thousands of assessments in the last decade and our clients include NGO, Domestic and Family Violence Support Services, DHHS Child Protection, State and Local Governments, and Police to name a few. With our experience brings a different perspective, compassion and empathy to understand the risk at hand and minimise the risk into the future. We empower the individual to feel safe in their own home through risk management and harness technology to ensure our clients are safe in and out of their home.

I cannot speak highly enough of the two representatives from the Safer in the Home program, very supportive, even after case was closed they still send me messages to check my safety.
Having the security system has changed our lives dramatically, not only do we feel safe, we no longer have to peek out windows to see if we are being watched or stalked, and are able to record and playback any previous movement. The installation crew were exceptional, ensuring every angle of the property were covered that the system was easy to use and navigate, and that recorded info could be downloaded easily and efficiently if needed as proof. The install was very tidy and clean with no damage or mess to my property. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!
Thank you so much for your contribution and support to our clients. Your service has been very professional and assistance has been excellent. We look forward to continuing to work with you and your team , and increasing access to safety for our women and children. Thank you specially to Safer in the Home for allowing us to utilise this valuable program, it really is making a difference in our community.
Just wanted to say thank you for the help and support you and your company have done for me and my family, since you have been out to my place to help with advice on security and getting security cameras installed we are already feeling much safer, the cameras have helped with my anxiety knowing it's recording 24 hrs a day, I feel I can finally sleep at night and not look out the window constantly worried for our safety.
I was blown away by the amazing support I received from the Safer in the Home program. I feel safe staying in my home with my children now that the locks have been changed and broken window has been replaced.
We strongly support the Safer in the Home program and believe it is a valuable service which greatly contributes to the ongoing safety of individuals who have experienced domestic and family violence... The feedback received from individuals who have been referred to the program is overwhelmingly positive.
The Safer in the Home program has assisted seven of my clients and their families to feel safer in their homes so that they can move forward with their lives in a positive way... I fully endorse the program which provides a thorough safety assessment of the home environment conducted by qualified and skilled assessors before upgrades are carried out. The program model has proven to be a valued resource in minimising the impact of domestic and family violence for the clients I assist in our community.
