Support women and children
escaping family violence
You Matter supports women and families who have experienced
family violence through the provision of furniture and other
household items necessary to run a functional home.
Our purpose is to aid in the recovery process of survivors of family
violence by providing a haven from which families can
launch their new life in a stable environment. Providing a home
ready to live in can reduce the financially crippling burden that
beginning a new life from scratch can hold. Our aim is to give those
women and families a home with hope for a brighter future.
Australians are increasingly aware of the prevalence of family violence
within our society and You Matter aims to be part of the solution.
You Matter operates on a community principle where we work collaboratively
with family violence agencies, lawyers, refuges to aid their clients who are in need of
furniture or other items for their home.
We are reliant on the goodwill of our community both through the provision of
household items and funds as well as volunteer labour.
We also believe in the circular economy and what better way to give back
to the community through donating second hand items that are in good
condition and ready for someone else to love and appreciate.
