UADV United Against Domestic Violence

UADV formally known as One Billion Rising Parramatta has been operating since 2012
on a volunteer basis, and have been recognised for the work we provide the
local community by being awarded the Australia Day Award for Project of the
Year 2016.

We have been assisting women and children residing at the Thelma
Brown Cottage (TBC) escaping domestic violence. Over the past 4 years UADV has
raised and donated over $100 000.00 in funds and items to the TBC and aim to
provide continued support to survivors.

Each year UADV not only providesfinancial assistance to the TBC we also provide gifts to the women and children during Mothers Day and Christmas. Our main aim is to assist survivors of domestic violence by working closely with the TBC which is a refuge in Parramatta. These women escaping from violent relationships usually leave with just the clothes on their back and only a few personal items they can fit in a bag and need to
restart their lives again from scratch.

What we do is assist the women infurnishing their new homes with the items that they have not been able to purchase during their 3 months stay at TBC

We hope that with our continued partnerships and support we are able to further assist the women and children when relocating to their permenant accomodation.
