NFAW supports WEL’s campaign on women and children’s safety

Women and their children across Australia are escaping domestic and family violence everyday. If you could spend only 2 cents a day to provide them with safe housing and support services, would you?

Well now you can.

The Women’s Electoral Lobby calculates that the $200 million a year (for five years) needed from the Commonwealth to fund our Women and Children’s Safety Program is just 2 cents per Australian, per day.

We know most Australians would say YES to paying that amount to save the lives of women and their children.

Will you take the 2 cents pledge?

Tell our federal political leaders the following pledge:

“To keep women and children safe, I am willing to pay 2 cents a day.”

What is the Women and Children’s Safety Program?

The Women’s and Children’s Safety Program (WCSP) is a five year $2 billion program developed by WEL and supported by more than 30 leading organisations including Chief Executive Women White Ribbon Australia, Women on Boards and the National Rural Women’s Coalition.

WEL has written to the leaders of the Liberal Party, the ALP, the Greens and the Nick Xenophon Team asking them to commit to a $2 billion commonwealth-state program to secure effective long-term funding for women’s refuges and other emergency services for women and their children escaping domestic and family violence.
