Our core strategies
Lucy’s Project raises awareness of the link between family/ domestic violence and animal abuse. We do this both amongst the general public and within the government and non-government organisations tackling the domestic and family violence crisis in Australia.
Lucy’s Project advocates for the animal victims of family/ domestic violence in order to also protect the human victims of family and domestic violence. We do this in a number of ways.
We offer direct consulting services to domestic violence organisations (and others) who are seeking to improve the outcomes for people with animals and be innovators in the field.
We work with organisations who need assistance understanding animal issues or requiring referrals to further support.
