Stopping family and domestic violence must be election priority
Anti-domestic violence advocates are calling for the major political parties to outline their policies before the upcoming election on how they plan to address family and domestic violence in WA.
Women’s Council for Domestic Family Violence Services CEO Angela Hartwig said too many West Australians had been killed or seriously injured, both physically and mentally, as a direct result of family and domestic violence.
The financing, delivery and effectiveness of programs to reduce homelessness
This research examined the funding sources of homeless services through administering a survey to Specialist Homelessness Services (SHS) and other (non-specialist) services which deliver homelessness services (non-SHS). While the survey highlighted that funding is predominantly from government sources, there is growing interest in the diversification of funding sources to meet service demand, enable service innovation and attain agency sustainability. Flexibility and discretion of funding utilisation is favoured by agencies to meet service objectives.
