Stacy Jane was the winner of the Aware Super NSW Community Hero of the Year Award at the 2022 NSW Women of the Year Awards.
Stacy Jane is the founder and CEO of Escabags, a charity providing free ‘escape bags’ filled with personal necessities to survivors escaping domestic abuse.
Inspired by her own survival story and by the kindness of others, in 2020 Ms Jane started Escabags. What began as therapeutic sewing to recover from complex PTSD grew quickly into a registered charity. Escabags are now available in over 800 stockists nationally.
Ms Jane believes that an escape bag is one practical way to help people leave abusive situations. She is committed to continuing to empower others through acts of kindness and generosity.
