Educational support for children affected by family violence

McAuley Learning Support aims to re-engage and re-connect school-aged children with learning. We support children and families affected by family violence, utilising trauma-informed practice. The sessions are designed to champion the mother, by developing family learning routines and strategies.

The program was originally offered face-to-face, but as a result of COVID-19, has moved online.

Our goal is to help each child to continue their learning journey regardless of physical location. The online format future-proofs their access to support, as families may be required to move accommodation or suburbs. Relocation is common amongst families facing family violence or homelessness, as a safety measure or to access available housing.
