Hope $500 million to fight domestic violence will ‘turn things around’

The NSW Minister for Women hopes almost half a billion dollars in funding will help save women suffering from domestic violence.

One in two women seeking safety while fleeing violence are turned away at refuges due to significant demand.

The state government will spend $484.3 million over four years on boosting services.

75 new shelters will be built, almost doubling the number in the state.

Minister for Women Bronnie Taylor told Deborah Knight it’s crucial for women to feel like they have somewhere to go.

“If we can provide those safe places … we can allow them to be able to reset, and give them the skills that they need to ensure that they’re safe and they can get on with their lives.

“The numbers have not been coming down and it’s not OK!”
