Support During COVID

The team at The Northern Centre are delighted to let you know that they will resume face-to-face services from 10 January 2022, and all of our staff and collocated partner organisations are fully vaccinated.

Between now and then, we will continue to work with you via ZOOM or phone.

We are an essential service and we will continue to deliver our services to all clients irrespective of their vaccination status. We have implemented COVID safe practices and upon arrival to our office it is expected that you will: check in via the QR code; have your temperature checked; and show your vaccination status.

Should you not be vaccinated, you will be asked to wear a mask and extra precautions will be made to protect you, our team and our other clients.

We look forward to emerging out of lock down.

SafeT Pilot Program

On average an abused woman may leave her partner up to seven or eight times before she breaks away for good. If someone who has been suffering from domestic and family violence is going to be able to make a permanent separation, they will need ongoing and consistent support.

SafeT will provide the support to break the cycle of returning.

Who is SafeT for?

Women with or without dependents who live in the Ryde LGA, who have left domestic family violence, are in private or social housing or in the family home and the perpetrator has left the home, requiring support to navigate their way to a life free of violence.

Please note that SafeT is initially operating for a 12 month period (Monday 10 January 2022 to Friday 16 December 2022) as a pilot program.

What is the process to request support?

Please complete the form via the Request Support button below for initial assessment and allocation.

The 12 month SafeT Pilot program is being funded principally by The Northern Centre, with contributions from The Commonwealth Bank of Australia, The Australian Chinese Charity Foundation, Bendigo Bank, The City of Ryde, Red Cape Hotels, Ryde Rotary and Encore Beauty.
