Women’s refuges save lives - spread the word!

Women’s refuges save lives. We request that the Prime Minister act swiftly to agree to a long-term secure separate national funding program for women’s refuges to ensure women and children escaping family and domestic violence have a safe haven and access to specialist services to enable them to rebuild their lives.

    Women’s refuges should never have been subsumed into the homelessness agenda in the first place. Specialised services for women and their children are essential in order to save the lives of abuse survivors.

    I’m completely unimpressed by the NSW government’s ideological agenda, cutting funding and insisting on replacement of the management of many shelters.

    As a past refuge worker and someone who was involved with “Ten Years On”, a review of the first ten years of the women’s refuge movement, I am utterly disheartened that we still need to argue not only for continued funding but the very existence of life-saving women’s refuges, to support women and children fleeing violence in their home.

    We are still open by the grace of God and for being an NGO. We need so many more refuges in the Northern Rivers area.
