Victim of Crime Support

Victim of Crime Support  – Enough is Enough was founded by Ken Marslew, following the senseless murder of his 18 year old son Michael at Jannali Pizza Hut in 1994. Since that time Ken has worked ceaselessly to promote the rights of victims through raising awareness of their needs through education, change to legislation and the promotion of personal responsibility.

Enough is Enough uses a unique counselling model Victim, Survivor, Thriver – the Journey which is based on personal experience, supported by professional training.

A definition of a victim is one who has no choice, it is acknowledged that there may be times in one’s life when you don’t understand that you have choices, however this is a temporary status. Staff at Enough is Enough is focus on assisting people to be aware of the choices available and on encouraging them to act on those choices to move on with their life.

You can then reach the position of being a survivor – one who endures. That is just getting on with life. There is however the opportunity to become a thriver, that is, you can take the worst thing that can possibly happen to you and use it as a learning experience to move on to have a more positive life style than previously.

Remember that victimhood is a temporary status, and by the use of positive reinforcement and support can be overcome.

Creative Paths to Healing

What is ‘Creative Paths to Healing’?

“Art Therapy emerged from the idea that art can be used not only to alleviate or contain feelings of trauma, fear or anxiety, but also to repair, restore and heal.” Cathy Malchiodi PhD, Expressive Art Therapist, Mental Health Counsellor and internationally recognized authority on art therapy with children, adults and families.

The Creative Paths to Healing program is an art therapy support program for people who have been victims of crime. Being a victim of crime is often a very traumatic experience. This art therapy program is designed to help victims of crime to explore relevant issues relating to trauma, grief and loss, and feelings of stress, anger and injustice. Participants have the opportunity to find new ways to express, contain and transform difficult post-traumatic experiences, using creative arts activities as a method of processing and alternative modes of self-expression.

Creative Paths to Healing is made up of 8 art therapy workshops that are run for 2 hours per week. The program is suitable for groups of 5-8 people.

Who is it for?

The Creative Paths to Healing program is open to all ages. Depending on numbers and registration, participants will be placed into age appropriate groups.

The benefits

Creative Paths to Healing may help you to:

  • Increase self-awareness so you can understand your thoughts, feelings and behaviour patterns.
  • Reduce symptoms of stress and anxiety and increase your quality of life.
  • Discover sources of inner strength to support resiliency and post-traumatic growth.
  • Discover innovative coping strategies to help with healing and recovery, and managing the after-effects of traumatic events.
  • Experience relief and support through communicating experiences which may be hard to put into words.
  • To join with others, to have fun and relax.


What is involved?

Creative Paths to Healing is presented as a personal journey where participants have the opportunity to get in touch with their individual emotional framework within a safe, culturally appropriate, confidential support group. Participants are invited to share their stories and images of life within the context of recovering from traumatic events and experiences, however they are “in charge” of the amount of verbal interaction they have in connection to their artworks.

Along with individual art projects, the workshop activities will also include:

  • Creative Journaling
  • Guided relaxation exercises
  • Making individual ‘Creative Pathways to Healing’ self-care tool kits.

‘Inclusion NOT Exclusion’ promoted In Engadine by ‘Enough is enough’ and Sutherland Shire Council

An exciting celebration of unity and harmony occurred at Engadine on Wednesday 23rd March, hosted by Mayor Carmelo Pesce and Enough is Enough Anti Violence Movement. Community members actively participated in the design and development of creative projects, including ‘the Magic Bunyip show’ led by artist Philip Aspden and ‘Strength Bracelets’ coordinated by Hayley Froggatt (leading art therapist- Enough is Enough). Representatives from diverse cultural backgrounds collaboratively devised artistic projects and were further inspired by the personal experiences shared by Mayor Carmelo Pesce in regards to his own family’s cultural diversity and their triumph through adversity that eventuated in great successes, including Mayor Pesce’s father, Tony, who is still the Shire’s most sought after Barber in Caringbah after 47 yeaers.

Ken Marslew (CEO Enough is Enough) lead the proceedings for this exciting afternoon and contributed his own family’s cultural experiences finding strength in diversity. Participants then proceeded to Engadine Community Hall to view the Colourfest film screening of short films that showcased the successes and challenges faced by migrant communities in the Australia and the world.

Representatives from diverse groups in the Shire came together to also share challenges and opportunities including; Kurranulla Aboriginal Corporation, Gymea Community Aid and Information Service, Enough is Enough Anti Violence Movement, the Sutherland Shire Amnesty International group and the Inner South-West Community Development Organisation

Charter of Rights

Victims of crime in New South Wales have a Charter of Victims Rights to protect and promote their rights.

  4. Information about investigation of the crime If you ask, you will be told about how the police investigation is going. But in some cases there may be some things the police can’t tell you.
  5. Information about the prosecution Prosecution is about taking the offender to court for the crime. This is done by the police, or, in serious cases, the Director of Public Prosecutions. As a victim, you will be told: – what the charges are OR why the offender has NOT been charged; – any decision of the prosecution to change or drop charges; – the date and place of the court hearing; * – the final court result, including any appeal or gaol sentence given. If the prosecution is thinking about changing or dropping the charges they will have a talk to you about this if the crime: – was a serious sex crime, OR – caused you physical harm, mental illness or emotional shock. BUT the prosecution don’t have to talk to you if: – you don’t want to talk about it, OR – they can’t find you.
  6. Information about being a witness If you have to give evidence as a witness in a trial you will be told about HOW the trial works and WHAT you have to do.
  7. No contact with the offender While your case is in court you will be protected from contact with the offender and the offender’s witnesses.
  8. Protection of your privacy You can keep your address and phone numbers private unless the court says different.
  9. Court business before the trial You do NOT have to go to any committal hearing (like a mini trial) or other court business before the trial UNLESS the court says you must.
  10. Returning your goods used as evidence If the police or prosecution took any of your goods as evidence you have the right to get it back as soon as possible.
  11. Your protection If you need protection tell the police or prosecution when the offender applies for bail.
  12. Special bail conditions You will be told about any special bail conditions the offender is given, which are meant to protect you or your family, like a condition which says the offender must not contact you.
  13. Bail decision If you were the victim of sexual assault or other serious assault you will be told if the offender gets bail or not.
  14. Victim Impact Statement If you want to tell the court about how the crime has affected you, then you will be given help and support to do this. This is called giving a ‘victim impact statement’.
  15. When the offender gets released If the offender is in gaol you can be told if the offender is going to be released from gaol soon, has escaped gaol or is on day release.
  16. When the offender applies for parole You can have a say if your offender applies for parole.
  17. Victims compensation If you were the victim of sexual assault or other serious assault, you can apply for victims compensation.
  18. Information about complaint procedures You can make a complaint if you think your rights under the Charter have not been met. You can ask for information about how to do this.
  19. The Charter, set out in the Victims Rights Act (1996) establishes standards for the appropriate treatment of victims of crime when dealing with government agencies and those funded by government – this includes police, health, welfare, prosecution and correctional services.

The R Youth Program

The R Youth Program has been designed to give young people (age groups from 11 years to 18 years) identified as “at risk” an understanding of their behaviour – the consequences of their behaviour and the strategies to deal with that behaviour in a simple and positive way. Raising empathy, building positive relationships and tools for emotional management, building resilience and personal values into daily life are also part of this proven program.

The program is suitable for co-educational groups, CALD groups or specific single gender groups.

Topics covered are:

  • Responsibility
  • Highlighting the impact of anti-social behaviour on the broader community
  • Raising the awareness of personal responsibility
  • Re-Evaluation
  • Past attitudes to a range of issues
  • Building values
  • Tools for positive change
  • Relationships
  • Dealing with emotions
  • Types of relationships
  • Goal setting strategies

We recommend separate sessions for teachers and parents to inform them and to assist in the best possible outcomes. On completion of the program attendees are given a certificate of attendance.

Team Spirit Support Groups (Yrs 4 – 6)

Is your child:

  • Being bullied?
  • Showing signs of not coping with challenging situations? Situations such as bullying, anxiety, stress, anger, separation/divorce?
  • Finding it difficult to express feelings?

Then Team Spirit is the right group for them. Team Spirit is an age appropriate support group for children and young people who are experiencing some of these challenges. It’s a place for them to talk and express how they feel in a confidential and safe environment. Fun activities are based around learning effective strategies and coping skills in an interactive manner.

Correctional Programs

Offender Rehabilitation Programs


Why work with Offenders?

People who have committed violent crimes and exhibited anti social behaviour are, whether we like it or not, still part of our community. Very few people stay in prison permanently.

Taking responsibility for one’s actions is not necessarily something that people learn by going to prison – however, it is a vital aspect of our programs.

When a person comes out of prison there is no guarantee of their rehabilitation- they have simply been punished; so one of the concepts of the program – goal setting and changing behaviours to get different outcomes – deals with these issues.

Our raises concepts that are vital to reintegrationinto the community, such as encouraging empathy for victims, encouraging personal initiative and individual goal setting.

Workshops and Programs for Correctional Centres

R Program (for correctional staff and inmates)

Our aim is to achieve positive attitude changes through education at all levels of community. We believe that prison inmates need to be included in this goal, as they are part of our community.

The R Program (Responsibility – Rehabilitation – Reintegration)was designed out of a belief that people who have committed crimes need to accept responsibility for their actions, the consequences of their actions and their victim’s suffering, before they can be rehabilitated.

This constructively confrontation program is available in two formats, for both inmates and staff. It has the potential to challenge negative belief systems and motivate individuals towards positive change.

A Certificate of attendance is given to those who participate fully in the workshop.

Watch our introductory video


Download our The R Program to find out more.

Reach Out and Relate Program (for correctional staff and inmates)

A program for developing relationships

This program is presented in a fun and spirited manner encouraging participants to work together addressing observable behaviours when being part of a team. The objective of this workshop is to engage participants to identify their own level of emotions and look at strategies for positive change.

The presenter uses tools and techniques that involve and encourage participation of individuals to display their preferred behavioural style and address ways to modify behavioural issues. The presenter also addresses levels of conflict and involves participants in their own personal journey and previous conflict through to future change.

Using a range of techniques and activities to reach the objective the topics covered are:

  • DISC Behavioural Profile (modified)
  • Behaviours and communications
  • Team activity for change
  • Conflict escalation
  • Conflict resolution strategies
  • The power of change

A Certificate of attendance is given to those who participate fully in the workshop.
