    • Accommodation such as emergency accommodation, short and long-term accommodation units and housing services
    • Food and welfare such as food vans, kitchens, laundry, showers, and Centrelink
    • Support centres such as Drop-in Centres, Community Centres, and Assessment and Referral Services
    • Health services such as emergency choices, street doctors, and specialty services
    • Legal assistance for tenancy/housing problems, victims of crime, Centrelink and more
    • Community and specialist services for domestic violence support, family support and immigration support
  • Employment
  • Facilities such as public libraries, lockers, free transport and toilets


The Lady Musgrave Trust is currently in production of the next hardcopy editions of the Handy Guide which will be available in 2023. 


From nowhere to go to know where to go

The Handy Guide resource is now also available online, providing information and support for women experiencing at-risk situations. If you or someone you know is getting ready to leave, we encourage you to make use of our resources for leaving safely.
