CHIA is urging its members and the wider sector to join us in calling on the Government to ensure access to safe and affordable housing is a key part of its agenda to improve safety for women and children.
On 6 September the Federal Government will hold the National Summit on Women’s Safety, a key part of the process of developing the 5th National Action Plan to Reduce Violence against Women and their Children.
Although organisations in the domestic and family violence sector, First Nations organisations and communities, and the broader community sector have called on Government to make access to safe and affordable housing a key part of its agenda to improve safety for women, housing hasn’t been included on the agenda for the summit, or in the preceding roundtables.
To highlight the importance of this issue, Everybody’s Home is inviting your organisation is invited to sign this Statement on Housing for Women’s Safety. A representative of your organisation, who is authorised to speak on behalf of the organisation, can sign the form. EH will then present the Statement to the Government.
