This study explores women’s experiences of “Safe at Home” program introduced in Western Australia in 2010. The program provides specialist support for up to twelve months to women (with or without children) who choose to remain in their own home, without the perpetrator, following an incident of domestic and family violence. In-depth interviews with participants of this program provided insight into what women believed contributed to stabilizing their housing; reducing further risks of violence; as well as suggestions improvements to policy and practice into the future.
