Tara's Angels is a unique service offering a personal caseworker for a period of up to 2 years to anyone residing in Canberra or the near surrounding areas of NSW, who has previously been in a Domestic Family Violence relationship and is now at the point of trying to rebuild their lives - at no cost to the victims.
Each Tara’s Angel provides a holistic approach, offering flexible support tailored to the individual person’s needs such as practical help, emotional support and advocacy. They will work with you to identify and achieve your short and long term goals, providing you with information, choices and options to help you move forward in rebuilding your life.
