Zonta House were pleased to welcome Premier Mark McGowan, Minister Simone McGurk MLA, Minister Sue Ellery MLC, Dr Jags Labor Candidate for Riverton, Hon Kate Doust MLC and sector colleagues from Centre for Women’s Safety and Wellbeing, RSPCA WA, WACOSS and Stopping Family Violence at our Head Office to announce the Labor Governments $60mil Family and Domestic Violence election commitment.
Zonta House congratulates the Labor Government at recognizing the need for a multi-dimensional approach to addressing Family and Domestic Violence and the vast impact it has on individuals, families and the community.
We acknowledge everyone in the community who as prioritized FDV as an urgent issue and most of all acknowledge the experiences and voices of victims/survivors and their families.
This commitment would provide an increase in safety and support for victims/survivors, bring change to systems that can cause harm, create more behaviour change opportunities for perpetrators and educate the community.
It is important to remember as individuals, organisations and the community that we all have a responsibility to contribute to ending Family and Domestic Violence.
