Azelene Williams - Westfield Local Heroes 2020

A mission to end domestic violence

From Fear to Freedom
Passionate. Honest. Advocate.

Azelene Williams has developed an innovative way to advocate against domestic violence.

After escaping a violent relationship that started in her teens, she became aware of the enormous gap in educating young people about domestic violence.

Azelene wrote a book about her experiences, BROKEN Breaking the Silence, and leaves copies in random spots around Perth for people to find.

Inside is a message asking people to advocate against domestic violence, sign the book and then pass it on or leave it for others.

"Over the years I have received numerous messages from people telling me how much my story changed their lives," Azelene says.

"My mission is to give more books away and to collaborate with organisations who can use my writing as a resource."

She also delivers a healthy relationships program in schools for to Years 8 to 12 students in collaboration with WA Child Safety Services.

Azelene says teens and children who are affected by domestic violence don't know how to break free. "For them, growing up this way is normal. This is also why we are sitting with constant bullying in our schools.Early education and community awareness is extremely important"

Westfield Local Heroes are nominated and voted for by their communities, with the three top finalists per Westfield centre each awarded a $10,000 grant for their affiliated organisation. From Fear to Freedom will use the grant to deliver prevention of Domestic Violence Workshops in schools and in the community.
