We’re partnering with the Canberra Rape Crisis Centre to offer free and confidential support to victims of domestic abuse, including a 24-hour helpline and crisis intervention workshops.
In addition to the support, the centre will also host free community events on Thursday nights to help young people with their mental health.
It is an ongoing challenge that we all share, but we all have to take the time to get through it and to feel good about ourselves.
The ACT Government is committed to ensuring that young people are not at risk from domestic violence, particularly as they transition into adulthood.
As part of the plan, we’re also committed to working with community organisations and organisations to ensure young people can access support and services, including alcohol and drug abuse support and information and information sessions for people at risk.
What are the ACT Government’s priorities for addressing domestic violence?
In April this year, the ACT government committed to increasing the number of domestic-violence survivors through a new Domestic Violence Awareness campaign.
This campaign will include a number of events across the state to support those who are at risk of domestic or family violence.
