Blueprint push to end violence in homes
STOPPING the cycle of domestic violence in its tracks has become a major election issue, with both sides of politics competing to offer solutions.
Now the NSW Women's Alliance and the Men's Behavioural Change Network of NSW have issued a blueprint listing what must be done to end the insidious crime.
The "A Safer State" report calls for the premier and other leaders to film messages unequivocally condemning domestic violence, as well as appointing a dedicated minister for domestic violence.
The Coalition has promised the latter, with Minister for Women Pru Goward set to take the post if the government is re-elected.
The blueprint says at least $100 million should be invested into the domestic violence support system over three years to expand health, housing and justice services for all victims.
