SHE (Support, Help and Empowerment) has operated as a not-for-profit specialist family violence service since 1989.
Over the past few years, 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, SHE 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.
