Got Your Back Sista is a registered charity which aims to support other women, including our most vulnerable sistas, those who have escaped a violent relationship and must start their lives again.

Currently based in NSW, we work directly with domestic violence services and refuges, by referral only, to provide:

1. BEGIN AGAIN PROGRAM – helping women and children, moving from a refuge to independent living, setup a safe home by providing furniture, white goods and household items, plus food and personal care items.

2. RISE UP AND THRIVE PROGRAM – aims to help women who have escaped domestic violence gain the confidence, support and skills they need to be happy, obtain employment and thrive. The Rise Up and Thrive program comprises workshops, mentoring, reskilling (if needed), work experience and employment opportunities for participants.

3. STAND TALL SISTA PROGRAM – helping women to feel mentally and physically strong through 10 weeks of self-defence training. This is a great opportunity for women to learn tips and techniques to feel empowered and safe, and to learn about personal space and boundaries and what to do if you feel threatened.

Unfortunately, domestic violence is prevalent in our country and the single biggest driver of women in to poverty, which in turn has a significant impact on their well-being, health and happiness.

Our vision is to see women and their children happy, thriving and living independently after escaping the trauma of domestic violence.
