Government’s domestic violence prevention program: Employers’ vital role in support and prevention

HR Leader
The government recently announced a $925.2 million investment over the next five years to establish the Leaving Violence Program in a bid to combat family and domestic violence (FDV) across Australia. Some argue that this initiative falls short, which is where workplaces can pick up the slack.

Under this new initiative, victims of FDV can access a financial support package of up to $1,500 in cash and up to $3,500 in goods and services, as well as safety planning, risk assessment and referrals to other essential services for up to 12 weeks. This is all a part of the government’s $2.3 billion campaign to help address violence against women.

“The heartbreaking reality is that there is no overnight solution to violence against women and children. My government is absolutely committed to making progress to end family, domestic and sexual violence in one generation through our National Plan,” Prime Minister Anthony Albanese said.

ASPL Group is calling for better protections and true prevention rather than what it calls a “reactive response”.

“Specifically, we call out the government to work with the sector and community to demolish and rebuild government systems and structures that currently focus attention on the person who has been abused rather than hold the abuser accountable,” ASPL Group said.
