Evidence-based spending on domestic violence is critical

The evidence based responses to preventing harm and death to women and children are ignored by government.

The international researcher into domestic violence, Dr Cris Sullivan finds that specialist domestic violence refuges are the most effective way of supporting women and children.

Millions of dollars are poured into perpetrator programs and available evidence shows a 90 per cent failure rate in changing violent and controlling behaviour.

The network of refuges across NSW dismantled in 2014 by the current LNP must be restored and recurrently funded.
