With Janelle Saffin at Women Up North
1.50pm | December 18, 2021
NSW MP Janelle Saffin, Labor Candidate for Page Patrick Deegan. Women and children fleeing domestic violence are struggling to find safe and affordable accommodation in the Northern Rivers. Local community organisation, Women Up North do everything they can to find beds for victim - survivors. But with no government support they are struggling to keep up with demand. Local member, Kevin Hogan has failed his community - failing to provide funding for additional crisis accommodation.
This can’t continue. An Albanese Labor government will invest in safe, affordable crisis and long term housing for women fleeing violence and older women facing poverty.
