ABOUT US

Submissions and advocacy

We use our knowledge of the issues facing women and children, their experiences, and gaps in services and systems, to advocate for change.

In 2019 we provided:

  • a submission to the Victorian Royal Commission into Mental Health Services where we explained that a focus on mental health is central to all our work, and advocated for further investment in vital community health services
  • a Victorian Government Parliamentary Inquiry into Disadvantaged Jobseekers, where we used our insight into the challenges that women who’ve experienced family violence and homelessness can face in getting work. Our Chief Executive Officer Jocelyn Bignold also gave evidence before the Inquiry.
