A safe and welcoming place

Our Canberra centre is a safe and welcoming place where people can address key issues including relationship breakdown as well as social and financial exclusion.

Many people face issues that are complex, which can feel overwhelming and difficult to work through. Some of our clients also live with disadvantage, and when faced with so much, the burden can be heavy.

It is here where we strive to create a place of hope, where the individuality of every person is respected, people’s strengths are acknowledged and where we provide pathways to rebuild and transform lives in a holistic way. 

What we do

Low Interest Loans

Giving people a fair go with a loan they can afford to pay

StepUP low interest loans are a fair and affordable option for families and individuals on low incomes, who require funds for personal and household expenses up to the value of $3000.

Alternative options such as payday lenders or loan sharks provide little to no help in breaking the cycle of debt, and by the time interest is paid, the value of the loan can increase by up to 400%. Families and individuals receiving government benefits or who have a marked credit history also come up against barriers when they seek loans through traditional channels, such as banks, so StepUP gives them a fair go and provides them with a loan they can afford to repay.

Tara's Angels

Our Tara's Angels case workers walk with women, mentoring and empowering them with practical and reliable support.

Tara’s Angels provides support to women in the ACT who have experienced domestic and family violence with up to two years of post-crisis support, helping women to connect with local agencies and services, and rebuild their life. 

Recovery after the impact and trauma of domestic and family violence is complex and long term. Women often feel vulnerable when dealing with the ongoing legal, financial, housing and social needs of the family. Our Tara’s Angels come alongside women and children, to help them rebuild their lives and to have new choices.  In working with their choices, our focus remains constant - our priority is always their safety and wellbeing.
