Are Government Domestic Violence Strategies Working?
Last year, the Federal Government introduced the Stop the Violence Strategy. The $100 million program is aimed at tackling domestic violence by expanding the support available to victims.
It has now been six months since the program was announced. Mitch checks in with Renata Field, the Director of Women’s Domestic Violence Court Advocacy Services. They talk about how the policy changes have impacted how they deliver their services, and how the government can move forward from here.
If you are experiencing domestic violence you can get help from the Domestic Violence Line on 1800 424 017. You can also get in touch with your local Women’s Domestic Violence Court Advocacy Service by going to their website www.wdvcansw.org.au
