The Federal Coalition Government, state and territory governments, and non-government organisations are committed to improving permanency outcomes for the 48,000 children in out-of-home care and ensuring they have a safe, stable and loving home.
Federal Minister for Social Services, Paul Fletcher, and Assistant Minister for Children and Families, Michelle Landry, have announced $4.13 million in continued funding for three organisations specialising in migrant settlement services.
The Coalition Government is funding a pilot program to provide domestic violence response (DV-alert) training to frontline workers supporting women with disability across the country.
It is not often you are able to have a focused conversation on addressing violence against women, and to get an opportunity to listen and absorb the knowledge of people with such deep experience. The focus has of course been the fourth and final action plan under the National Plan. The National Plan has been an Australia-wide commitment to addressing family, domestic and sexual violence across the Commonwealth, states and territories.
