Escaping Violence Payment trial – information for referring agencies

The Escaping Violence Payment (EVP) offers financial assistance and confidential support to help people move forward and set up a home free from violence. The EVP program provides individualised packages that are tailored to enable victim survivor choice and autonomy, shaped alongside victim survivors to include what they need. An EVP package can consist of up to $1500 in cash (or cash equivalent including vouchers where this is safer) and other goods, as well as wraparound support provided by the EVP. People needing this assistance may contact the program directly or can be supported by a referring agency or worker. View the information sheet for full details on how referrers can provide access to the initiative.
