Your Partner Towards Financial Freedom

Your Partner Towards Financial Freedom

What we are all about.

Every job placement is a financial lifeline.

Arise Foundation focuses on the empowerment and financial freedom of survivors of financial abuse through no-interest loans, employment training and job placement, wrap-around support services and advocacy.

There has been incredible work done to support survivors of family and domestic violence at crisis stage in Australia. However, there’s an identified need to continue that support holistically past the crisis stage to create sustainable pathways to recovery. The lasting effects of financial abuse are a significant factor in perpetuating cycles of violence. Survivors of financial abuse are often considered ‘unbankable’, with poor credit scores, low financial literacy, and inconsistent employment histories acting as barriers of access to their financial freedom.


At Arise Foundation, these survivors are not unbankable – they’re unbreakable. With tailored education and training programs, financial assistance and boost funding, counselling and job placements, we’re endlessly honoured to partner with and support amazing, resilient women who are boldly reclaiming their futures through financial independence.
