Children’s Support

Women often access the Alice Springs Women’s Shelter seeking safety not only for themselves but also for their children. All our staff work to create a positive atmosphere to support the children and focus on their individual needs.

We have a specific Children’s Support Worker at ASWS to support you and your children through an often traumatic time of upheaval. Stability is important for children, and during this difficult time we help the children staying at the shelter to continue with attending school to establish their routine.

We make sure to provide a happy and healthy environment for children to learn, play and feel safe. We have facilities set up for children of all ages, including a playground and a children’s playroom equipped with games, movies, paints, crafts and books.
