With Labor colleagues in Melbourne announcing funding for domestic violence sector workers

9.43am | May 12, 2022

It was an absolute pleasure to sit down in Melbourne with domestic and family violence services supporting women and children, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families, LGBTIQA+ people and culturally diverse communities. They are all such strong advocates.

I was also pleased to speak with them about Labor’s commitment to invest $8.1 million in crisis accommodation and fund an additional 19 workers to support people experiencing violence in Melbourne.

Thanks too to my colleagues for bringing their own experiences and those of their communities to this discussion.
