Brits – Grace Help Centre is proud to be a member of the National Shelter Movement that was established and launched in August 2008. 

The mission of the movement is to engage in service provision and capacity building on gender-based violence (GBV) and providing a shelter for abused women and children living in South Africa. The goal of the National Shelter Movements is to promote gender sensitivity and provide effective and efficient services to the women and children who take refuge at the shelters. 

The movement also plays a key role by equipping workers at the forefront of fighting GBV with the relevant skills and knowledge to execute their duties with care and respect. It also offers space for mutual support and provides a platform for victims to share their experiences among each other with the view of addressing their common challenges. 

Grace Help Centre – which works in close partnership with the Department of Health as well as the Department of Social Development – has been recognised on many occasions by the government for the role it has played in helping victims of GBV and abuse.
