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.

    Funding effective services to women and children fleeing the violence in their own homes is critical. Prevention is critical. This all takes a commitment to creating a better society, one that is safer for victims and where respect for women is more than – dare I make the observation? – three words….

    My daughter is now severely disabled from domestic violence. She cannot walk, talk or eat. When I found her at the hospital she had in her bag the names and numbers of two women’s refuges in Melbourne. Both were full and could not take her.

    Governments can talk about domestic violence and they can run advertising campaigns and set up hotlines but without stable safe place to escape to women are left vulnerable. Long term funding of refuges and housing assistance is essential.
