You Matter supports victims of domestic and 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 victims of
domestic 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 our
clients a home with hope for a brighter future.
Australians are increasingly aware of the prevalence of domestic
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 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.
You Matter is supported by a Boroondara Community Strengthening Grant.
