Together let's build a future free from violence and abuse.

Carrie's Place is a safe haven for all.

We acknowledge the people of the Wonnarua, Worimi, and Awabakal Nations, as the traditional custodians, of the land where this organisation provides services.

We extend our respect to elders, past and present. And offer our deepest sorry, for harm and pain experienced as a result of white settlement. This is and ALWAYS WILL BE Aboriginal land.

You are always welcome at Carrie's Place.

Carrie’s Place provides a range of culturally appropriate programs, for people experiencing domestic and family violence, and/or homelessness.

We employ highly qualified workers with specialist skills who provide case management and court advocacy, to assist people to move forward with their lives with independence, safety, and security.

We have been providing services in the Maitland and Hunter area since 1979, and are truly a community owned organisation.

Carrie's Place is a safe place for you and your children. And we believe that everyone has the right to feel safe all the time.

Diversity and inclusion.

These things are very important parts of our key drivers. We embrace diversity in all its forms, ethnicity, race and religion, gender, age, abilities, perspectives, social and economic backgrounds.

We work closely with the local Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander community and respectfully acknowledge Indigenous Australians past and present as the Traditional Owners and custodians of the land on which we live and work.
