 ”The partnership has not only been beneficial to
the shelter, it has been beneficial to our
organisation. It has created agency wide
understanding of an important social issue and how
it can impact on workplaces and colleagues.”

GET INVOLVED

We believe that all sectors of Australian
society can help end domestic violence. Australian
workplaces are key players because two thirds of
those living with violence are also employed.There
are so many ways that you can take small steps
with us to end this silent epidemic.
