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.
