THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME
An award-winning podcast putting survivors of family violence at the centre of the story.
In collaboration with our Proud Partner
THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME SEASON TWO
Many of us have observed a new romance from afar and felt uncomfortable. But what’s the difference between simply not liking someone’s partner and suspecting something sinister is going on? What about when it’s your new partner?
Research tells us that more than half of all victims and survivors reach out to family and friends first.* Whether you’re concerned about the wellbeing of a loved one or interrogating your own safety in a relationship, this season dives into the complex nuances of the warning signs of domestic abuse.
From love bombing and gaslighting to isolation and financial control, season two of There's No Place Like Home podcast will become a practical resource helping you interrogate the relationships in your life.
WE URGE YOU TO LISTEN
“Emotional abuse, it feels like you're trying to scream, but there's a cloth in your mouth. It's really hard to articulate but it is suffocating.”
*We have used a pseudonym to protect Stacey's identity
Gender equality and mental health advocate
Tarang brings his lived experience, empathy and understanding to the fore as he presents an unflinching assessment of the current situation and explores the possible solutions.
"You can quite literally be the difference between that woman telling her story and leaving and seeking support, or making sure that she never says anything to anyone again.”

THE COLD, HARD FACTS
- On average, one Australian woman will be killed by a current or former partner each week
- 1 in 4 Australian women (23%) have experienced physical or sexual violence by a current or former intimate partner since age 15
- Family and domestic violence is the main reason women and children leave their homes in Australia
- Sadly, 1 in 5 Australians believe domestic violence is a normal reaction to stress
- The time of a break-up is particularly dangerous. 2 in 3 women killed by their current or former partner between 2000-2014 had separated within three months of the homicide
- Domestic violence is the primary cause of death to mothers during pregnancy, both in Australia and internationally. During the pandemic, women who were pregnant were between 3 and 4 times more likely to experience physical and sexual violence compared to women who were not pregnant
- First Nations women experience violence at over 3 times the rate of non-Indigenous women and are nearly 11 times more likely to die due to assault
- Women with disabilities in Australia are around two times more likely than women without disabilities to have experienced sexual violence and intimate partner violence
- People living in remote and very remote areas are 24 times more likely to be hospitalised as a result of family violence
- 1 in 3 migrant and refugee women in Australia have experienced some form of domestic and/or family violence
Domestic and family violence is an epidemic. Violence against women in particular costs the Australian economy more than $22 billion each year, the majority of which is borne by victim-survivors. It’s time to treat it like the national emergency it is. But first? We have to listen and we have to learn.
"Nobody knew what was happening to me. But places like my workplace were sanctuaries for me."
We marked the launch of the first season of There's No Place Like Home at Cafe Sydney with a powerful panel discussion featuring Future Women's Jamila Rizvi, anti-violence advocate Tarang Chawla, family violence survivor and author Amani Haydar, violence prevention specialist Moo Baulch and CommBank Next Chapter's Sian Lewis.
