National Crisis on Domestic Violence
There is no clearer symbol of continuing gender inequality in our society than the epidemic of violence against women.
The biggest risk factor for being a victim of family violence is being a woman. 1 in 3 Australian women have experienced physical violence since the age of 15. That's not good enough; in fact that is a crisis.
Family and domestic violence is an epidemic and it requires a united community approach to end it.
You can read more about Labor's policy on domestic and family violence here.
Join with Labor to call on the Prime Minister to hold a national crisis summit on family violence so we can have a national response to family violence. Sign the petition here.
Daisy has been developed with input by all State and Territory governments, and funded by the Australian Government under the Second Action Plan of the National Plan to Reduce Violence against Women and their Children 2010-2022.
Domestic and family violence affects one in three Australian women, and sexual assault affects one in five women over the age of 15. Daisy connects women who are experiencing or have experienced sexual assault, domestic and family violence to services in their state and local area. Daisy provides women with an easy way to find a wide range of services.
Responding to violence requires a whole-of-government approach, so in addition to specialist services Daisy also lists legal services, housing and finance services and children's services. You can create a list of favourite services for easy reference.

SPRINKLE SOME CHANGE - THE PINK BUN CAMPAIGN is almost here!
From Thursday, nearly 600 Bakers Delight bakeries will join forces with their local communities to raise $1.5 million for Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA).
Last year's record-breaking campaign raised almost $1.8 million for women, men and families affected by breast cancer - What an incredible achievement it was!
This year the campaign will run from 21 April to 11 May and we are delighted that there are so many ways members and communities can get involved. For those wanting a sweet treat, bakeries will of course be selling Pink Buns throughout the campaign. We're also inviting our members to visit their local bakery to purchase a paper Pink Lady silhouette and leave a tribute or message of support. Every cent goes directly to BCNA to help us reach out target! This year the campaign will run from 21 April to 11 May and we are delighted that there are so many ways members and communities can get involved.
