DFSV sector receives $36m boost

DFSV sector receives $36m funding boost

The Miles Government will boost funding to the domestic, family and sexual violence sector by $36 million next financial year.

“We all have a responsibility to listen to the voices of victim survivors and act to make real change for future generations.

“A 20% increase in funding will help with the immediate need to increase our specialist staff to support people coming to our service. Only 15% of investment into DFSV reform investment from Hear Her Voice has gone to frontline specialist services like DVAC. The majority of the funding has gone back to government.

“Our services need to be adequately funded so that each and every person who calls for help can be supported at the time that they need it. Our specialist staff are dedicated professionals making a positive change every day and we work tirelessly to support women and children to live a life of their choice with safety and dignity.

“We thank the Miles Government for listening and committing to an urgent uplift of funding.”

Amie Carrington, CEO, DVAC
