Last month, the Commonwealth Government announced a $100 million package of measures to support women and children at high risk of experiencing family violence. The package will improve frontline support and services, leverage innovative technologies to keep women safe and provide education resources to help change community attitudes to violence and abuse.
The package includes $21 million for specific measures to help Indigenous women and communities.
See the press release for more information about the programs being funding.
