Banksia Academy

Established in 2022 to bridge the gaps in recovery support for victim survivors of domestic and family violence, Banksia Academy was created alongside our work-integrated social impact business, Scriibed. Scriibed is a Social Traders certified business, providing safe, flexible and secure work in the digital economy. We invest in listening to the voices of women with lived experience, and provide training, education and pathways into higher paid employment in the digital economy whilst wrapping the right supports around women survivors. We believe this aspirational approach can break cycles of abuse, and contribute to reaching critical Sustainable Development Goals for women and children. The Academy provides two streams of support to women survivors: one is for women to return to work, and the second is through mainstream employers, to better support their people and women at work to thrive. The flow-on positive impacts for women, their children and generations to come, is incomparable to the status quo.
