Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, Minister for Women Michaelia Cash, and Australian of the Year Rosie Batty have announced a suite of measures committing the Australian Government to action on domestic violence, but have not addressed separating women's refuges and housing from homelessness services.
The Women’s Electoral Lobby and several other women’s organisations are advocating for long term Commonwealth/State Funding for a Women's Refuges and Housing Program (WRAHP).
WEL are currently consulting widely on the WRAHP proposal and we welcome your support and comments.
We have just launched a petition which you can sign here - www.wel.org.au/wrahp - Please share widely!
Please email any feedback to [email protected] by 19 October.Read more
