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.

    If victims know they have support and somewhere to go – they will hopefully feel strong enough to get out before the perpetrator goes too far…and leaves them both without choices

    This is so essential and I simply despair that we have gone so far backwards during the ascendancy of Tony Abbbott. Hoping sanity will re-emerge and that women and childrens refuges may again be given the priority and specialized staffing they deserve in a civilized country such as we were.

    Especially in light of the staggering level of domestic violence against women and the tragic effect on children and family, it is imperative to restore and increase the availability of womens’ refuges to protect vulnerable women and their children in appropriate housing away from fear. Why are the buildings in beautiful Callan Park , Rozelle, empty and falling more and more into disrepair every day? This is an ideal environment and should become a safe community by refurbishing the disused ex-hospital and dormitory buildings before they crumble!
