SUBJECTS: Domestic and family violence, 500 additional community sector workers, crisis accommodation for women and children fleeing violence 

'It's terrific to be here at Mackay Women's Services. I'm grateful to Linda-Ann Northey, for welcoming us here this morning. We've had a terrific talk about the kinds of issues that are facing women in Central Queensland. Right across the country, we hear that women are struggling to find accommodation for themselves and their children when escaping violence. People often say, why doesn't she leave? Well, the answer is because too often there just isn't anywhere to go.'

"Domestic violence is at epidemic levels. We've heard this morning from Rosie and her team about the increase in demand on her service just in the last few months. They are picking up an additional 100 women per week, needing their service. It is an enormous load, and it speaks to the scale and extent of the tragedy. Labor understands that if we form a government, we will need to lead on this."

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.
