WA Family Violence Prevention Legal Services release Pre-Election Policy Statement calling for greater FVPLS funding

Aboriginal Family Legal Service WA and Southern Aboriginal Corporation have today released our pre-election policy statements ahead of the upcoming Federal Election.

We are calling for Commonwealth commitments to sustainable, long-term, and predictable funding to address the crises currently facing Family Violence Prevention Legal Services and Aboriginal Community Housing Organisations across Australia. This investment will be critical if the next Government of Australia is genuinely committed to ensuring the continuity of culturally appropriate, trauma informed and Aboriginal led solutions to violence, housing and other related issues experienced by Aboriginal people. This will also be critical to achieving outcomes under the National Agreement on Closing the Gap.
