Karinya House recognises that safety along with time and space for dialogue are powerful tools for reflection and action. Dialogue based in mutual trust and respect can guide and empower people in the positive transformation of their world. Learning from each other and the building of peer and community-based networks is an important part of the Karinya House practice framework, as evident in the Karinya House Group Program (‘Group Program’). Through the supported development of positive peer relationships women are provided an opportunity to increase their social support and social opportunities as well as developing new life skills. Women develop a greater sense of belonging and a stable platform from which to grow.
