Domestic and family violence in our country is a national emergency. Through working closely with 1800RESPECT I’ve seen the significant increases in demand to the service, in the past financial year alone it rose by 78%. These figures are alarming, and I am committed to actively seeking positive change and an end to violence against women and children.

Domestic and family violence is a community issue and we all need to come together and step up. I will be a role model by encouraging people to speak out on domestic and family violence, whether that be in the workplace, or with family and friends, to see the positive change we need.

Key Message

Violence is never okay. Doing nothing does harm, so every one of us must come together and step up, in our family, our own workplace, and community. We need to stop violence before it occurs and build a safer Australia for all women and children.
