BURNEY, MCALLISTER, LEIGH & TEMPLEMAN MEDIA RELEASE - RESTORING RESPECT FOR THE COMMUNITY SECTOR - TUESDAY, 15 MARCH 2022

2.54pm | March 15, 2022

An Albanese Labor Government will support a stronger, more diverse and more independent community sector. 

Through floods, fires and a pandemic, the community sector has stepped up to provide support to struggling Australians. 

Despite this, the Morrison Government has repeatedly tried to devalue and silence community sector voices. At the same time, many community sector organisations have been working with less money, less funding certainty and increased stress. 
 
If elected, Labor will change this.

WE CAN’T LET MORRISON TAME GRACE’S LEGACY

BURNEY & MCALLISTER - MEDIA RELEASE - GOVERNMENT FORCED TO LISTEN TO WOMEN - TUESDAY, 18 JANUARY 2022

2.22pm | January 18, 2022

GOVERNMENT FORCED TO LISTEN TO WOMEN 

Labor thanks victim-survivors of domestic and sexual violence, frontline service providers, academics and advocates for once again calling the Government out on their poor listening skills.

After missing every deadline, the Morrison-Joyce Government gave experts just two weeks to review the draft National Plan to End Violence against Women and Children 2022-2032.

GOVERNMENT RUSHES CONSULTATION ON DRAFT NATIONAL PLAN TO END VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN AND CHILDREN

The government is not off to a great start. It is unfortunate that victim-survivors, frontline workers and advocates have been given just two weeks in January to comment on the draft plan. This plan was due months ago. The community should not have to pay for this Prime Minister’s failure to deliver.
