The majority of dangerous or violent behaviour occurring behind closed doors is committed by men against women. According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics nearly half a million women had experienced some form of physical and sexual violence or sexual assault in the last 12 months. That figure is alarming. Nearly 40% of women who had been assaulted said the perpetrator was either a current or past male partner or a male family member/ friend. And more than 60% of women never reported their assault to the police.
RizeUp Australia is a community driven organisation dedicated to supporting the brave families affected by Domestic and Family Violence. Founded by Nicolle Edwards who was a co-founder of Assist A Sista, a former Domestic Violence Support Group with Sonia Deakin and Julie McCoy who were also a part of Assist A Sista, RizeUp Australia is dedicated to supporting men and women from all walks of life. RizeUp Australia drives awareness of domestic and family violence in the media and provides practical assistance to the families leaving violence behind with ‘Rapid Response’, ‘At Home’ and ‘Rize4Liam’ programs.
