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.

    Long term funding is crucial to tackling domestic violence in our nation.

    If the PM truly believes that domestic violence is an epidemic then he needs to back this up by funding frontline services.

    As a young child, I thought it was normal for fathers to yell and hit. My mother felt she had no option but to stay. No one should have to experience any violence – physical or verbal. Please fund this vital program.

    Without support & refuges, women in domestic violence situations will not be safe and the other measures to be taken will be useless.
