About Your Toolkit

What is Your Toolkit?

If you are facing family and domestic violence, or supporting someone who is, Your Toolkit provides a free, comprehensive, road map forward towards independence and resilience.  Our regularly updated website contains a broad range of information about keeping safe, finding support and money matters.

Why We Exist

We exist to help you access relevant information, as well as support networks and services your need: easily, safely and reliably.

How We Help

Experiencing domestic violence of any form is tough: our goal is to provide you with all the information you need in one place. Information that is reliable and regularly updated, so that you don’t have to spend time searching different platforms and using various tools to get the information you need. This site provides you with everything you’ll need to know whether you are preparing to leave a violent or abusive relationship, look for ways to keep safe while staying in one, or finding your feet after you have left a relationship.

The information on our site may help you if and when you need to make important decisions. It provides links and telephone numbers to key organisations, as well as key actions to consider when facing difficult and challenging situations. To make it easy to use, the information is divided into 4 sections:

  1. Prepare
  2. Act Now
  3. Rebuild, and
  4. Thrive

Your Toolkit does not provide direct support, but it does contain important, and updated, information about immediate  support services,  help lines and women's refuges.

While some of the resources referred to in Your Toolkit are based in Western Australia, most of the resources are national or have counterparts in other states.  We also include a lot of information about resources that are Australia-wide, as well as information that is useful wherever you are located in the world.  We are building towards expanding Your Toolkit to include location specific information for all Australian states and territories, our aim is to have this done by the  end of 2021.

Your Toolkit was built in consultation with women who have experienced domestic and family violence, as well as support workers and industry professionals who understand the needs of women and families experiencing abuse and we value continued feedback.

If you feel that there is additional information or resources that we should add on this website, please send us an email at [email protected].
