Research at Safe Haven Community (SHC) focuses on identifying and developing effective early intervention programs that provide long term positive outcomes for vulnerable people experiencing family and domestic violence.

SHC provides assistance to people dealing with abusive relationships before the abuse escalates to physical violence. Prioritising people who experience coercive control prevents escalating domestic violence while simultaneously reducing the burden on family and domestic support services. This type of early intervention negates an immediate and a life-time of negative impacts that involve mental and physical health issues, negative education and relationship outcomes, the justice/legal system and homelessness.
