Domestic violence outreach workers

Our trained workers support people who are impacted by domestic and family violence. We are committed to ensuring people who are experiencing violence are safe and well.

We also work with people who use violence or control in their relationships to help them understand, acknowledge and change their behaviour.

Our empowerment workers walk alongside women and children impacted by domestic abuse to enhance their safety and well-being and empower them to thrive in a future free from domestic abuse.

We do this through:

  • crisis support and immediate case work 
  • specialist support at the Beaudesert Court (Wednesday weekly)
  • exploring ways to increase property security
  • information and links to relevant services to support your health, parenting, financial, legal and other counselling needs
  • individual empowerment sessions
  • empowerment groups
  • specialised counselling for your children.

Formerly Beaudesert Domestic and Family Violence service, the name SHINE reflects our key focus areas of Safety, Healing, Independence, New Beginnings and Empowerment.

Responsible Men is a domestic and family violence behaviour intervention program. It is designed for men in the Logan area aged 18 years and above, who use violence or are controlling in their relationships.

During the Responsible Men program we focus on how you can take responsibility to change your beliefs, behaviour and decision-making without using violence, and how you can use this knowledge to make positive, ethical changes for healthy, respectful and safe relationships.

Through group work, we assist you to acknowledge and recognise your own behaviours and their impacts, and to change your verbal, financial and psychological abuse, stalking and other abusive and controlling behaviours that instil fear.

The Responsible Men program is a 22-session program. We run three night groups per week, free of charge, on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday 6-8pm.

We also run a condensed 16-session program on Thursday mornings that is a hybrid format that can be done in-person or online (via Zoom).

Responsible Fathers

Responsible Fathers is a domestic and family violence behaviour intervention program designed for men who are fathers and who have already completed a behaviour intervention program such as YFS’ Responsible Men program.

This program is a 16-session program and we run this free of charge twice per year on a Tuesday night, 6-8pm.
