Gold Coast Sunday 1st May – Hats & High Tea Event to support Friends with Dignity Charity supporting victims of domestic violence

Who are Friends With Dignity?

Friends with Dignity is a volunteer based not-for-profit registered charity that provides practical programs to assist survivors of domestic violence in collaboration with refuge and crisis centres. Our dedicated and passionate team of Volunteers are committed to making a difference within our Community, and changing the lives of the men, women and children we assist. All of our Programs are gifted unconditionally, we do not charge the Victims we assist nor the supporting organisations and refuges who refer their clients to us.

Built on the foundation that change is effected through community engagement, our programs encourage individuals, groups and organisations to actively initiate change by providing tangible ways in which we all can Step Up, Speak Out and Support. Beyond raising awareness of domestic violence, we seek to work with communities to be part of the solution.

Our ongoing and respected relationships with local refuges and crisis centres is testament to the dedication of our volunteers, and professional leadership of our executive team.

Help survivors reclaim their dignity

An entrusted partner to those on the ‘front line’, we work not in competition, but alongside these and other organisations, recognizing that our mutual goal is to reduce the instances of domestic violence in Australia.

Friends with Dignity recognizes that domestic violence does not discriminate. It affects men, women and children irrespective of race, ethnicity or socio-economic standing and our programs are available, on referral, to any individual or family seeking assistance.

We invite all Australians to join us in supporting survivors of domestic violence as we work towards building a nation free from domestic violence.

Friends with Dignity can only operate with the support of our friends. All donations go directly to supporting survivors of domestic violence to rebuild their lives and reclaim their dignity.

We accept gift cards, cash, household and personal care items, and we issue appeals for specific items.

Friends with Dignity is a registered national charity, so any donation of two dollars and over is tax deductible.
