Budget Increase to End Violence Against Women and Children
The Albanese Labor Government has recently announced a significant investment to support the National Plan to End Violence against Women and Children 2022-2032. This budget will provide $589.3 million to further enhance women’s safety. This comes in addition to the Commonwealth’s investment of $1.7 billion in women’s safety through the October Budget. The initiatives funded through this budget aim to prevent violence, intervene early, and bolster frontline services.
Key highlights from the budget include:
Early Intervention: $8.5 million allocated for initiatives targeting early intervention to prevent family, domestic, and sexual violence.
Frontline Service Delivery: $159 million to extend the National Partnership on Family, Domestic and Sexual Violence Responses.
Emergency Accommodation: $3.3 million to review emergency accommodation services, ensuring they are suitable for children.
Family Law: $33.1 million to expand the Family Law Priority Property Pool program, aiding separated couples in achieving fair settlements.
Escaping Violence Payment: $38.2 million to extend the Escaping Violence Payment trial until 31 January 2025.
