A new program supporting Indigenous women who have experienced domestic violence will begin next week in Geraldton.

The program, run by Centacare Family Services, aims to strengthen family relationships and help create positive change in lives through services such as counselling and spiritual healing.

The sessions will take place in a group therapy setting and discussions will remain strictly confidential. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss topics with professionals who specialise in areas such as domestic violence, grief or loss, general health, substance abuse and stress management.

There are five sessions in all, with the first beginning Tuesday 15 May at the Spalding Family Centre on Mitchell Street, Geraldton from 9am-12pm.

To register and organise an initial one-on-one chat with the facilitator, call the Geraldton Family Relationship Centre on 9921 2611.
