There is an epidemic of domestic violence across Australia and the housing crisis is only making this worse. Here in Perth refuges are often full. When women are ready to leave violence, they struggle to find secure, affordable accommodation. That is why housing is at the heart of Labor’s women’s safety policy. Here is western Australian we will invest $7.8 million for additional crisis accommodation. And across the nation we will build 30,000 new homes with 4,000 of these for women and children fleeing violence and older women at risk of homelessness. Thank you to Starick for hosting us and sharing the stories of your important work.
