Welfare report

Practitioners working on domestic violence projects will benefit from a new report released by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, which has flagged the issue as a high priority going forward.

Domestic and family violence affects individuals as well as the broader community, burdening both the health and justice system. The report contains useful data for practitioners, which will help guide the implementation of violence prevention projects.
