We also organise community education programmes, promote harmonious and healthy family relationships, provide training to multi-disciplinary professionals and advocate for policies and legislations on behalf of victims of violence, their families and communities. Mission: 1. To tackle the social problems of domestic violence using diverse approaches, and promote harmonious and healthy relationships in families with a comprehensive range of preventive and therapeutic services. 2. To contact and reach out to families in need through counselling and crisis intervention. 3. To change the misconcept and incorrect attitude towards domestic violence through community education, impart appropriate knowledge and skills handle domestic violence.
