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 - - Please share widely!

Please email any feedback to [email protected] by 19 October.

WEL estimates that a five year funding model would cost $1,982m.
