Safe connections

Our Safer Community has a local partnership with Safe Connections.

Safe Connections is a program by WESNET and Telstra, where we provide female-identifying survivors of family violence, sexual assault and technology-facilitated abuse with free pre-paid smartphones. The smartphone includes $30 credit, as a way of helping link them with life-changing support.

If you are a female-identifying student who has experienced technology-facilitated abuse, you can be referred to Safer Community. You will get a Safe Connection phone with credit and advice on appropriate internal and external support services.
