Van Go Circle of Strength Courage Cards, Posters and Greeting Cards are available for purchase.

For the past 10 months Van Go's Art therapist Becky has been working on a project involving Darley Primary School, Bacchus Marsh College and students from Federation University at The Laurels. The purpose of this project has been to work with students who have experienced family violence, to hear their voices and to produce a product that can in turn help others. The result has been the successful production of sets of affirmation cards to help those who have/are experiencing difficult times. The children have contributed to the development of the cards through participating in art therapy activities, numerous group discussions on family violence and sharing their own personal insights and stories. The children from all three groups helped in the word selection process, choosing strengths that they believed they possessed having been through family violence.

As well as the sets of Courage Cards, WRISC has posters and greeting cards for sale.

WRISC Family Violence Support

WRISC exists to change the lives of women and children affected by family violence.

Violence (or abuse) can take many forms and includes:
  • isolating from family and friends
  • controlling access to money or how it is spent
  • name calling, belittling and putdowns
  • making all the decisions and controlling what she does
  • preventing practicing of cultural or spiritual beliefs
  • intimidation
  • making threats
  • physically harming
  • sexualised violence

We believe that everyone has the right to be safe, to be treated equally and to have access to the same opportunities as everyone else. We know that violence of any kind denies people these rights.

WRISC helps to provide safety, support, information, advocacy, children's counselling, court support, and case management. We provide services across the Central Highlands region of Victoria, and our service is free and confidential.
