RizeUp Australia
RizeUp.  Educate. Empower. End.

Rizeup Australia is a community-driven organisation of passionate men and women, dedicated to supporting the many families affected by domestic and family violence.

Whilst we raise awareness through speaking engagements, the victims of Family and Domestic Violence need more than talk. They need practical help – and they need it fast! That’s where RizeUp makes a very real difference. We have created various programs to support and empower the brave families via the specialist domestic and family violence organisations (for security reasons, we do not directly meet the families we support) – from helping to create a new home for victims fleeing a violent household and supporting children in their healing process, to raising much-needed funds for families left with nothing but the clothes on their backs.

Founded by CEO Nicolle Edwards (Co-Founder/Director of AssistASista), with Sonia Deakin, Director | Media & Communications (M10.com.au, former Director of AssistASista) and Julie McCoy, Brand Manager (McCoyDesign.com.au, former Brand Manager of AssistASista), joined by an outstanding team of men and women from all walks of life, along with Patrons Shelley Craft and Mia Freedman.

Designed to meet the diverse needs of families fleeing domestic violence (this could include food, blankets, urgent funds, etc.) quickly and efficiently. When families leave a refuge, they are given a barren property, which we transform into a purposefully-created home specific to their individual needs. We help children in refuge to reach their full potential providing whatever is needed to raise their self-esteem and help them fit at school – uniforms, hair cuts, extra curricular activities, fees, lunch boxes, books and bags.
