Constituency question: Family violence services in Hume
My constituency question is for the Minister for Prevention of Family Violence. Hume in my electorate continues to report high rates of family violence. In 2020–21 there were more than 4100 family violence incidents recorded in Hume, the third most for a local government area in the state. Hume City Council have been advocating for additional family violence support in their area, including a family violence refuge, but are yet to see any new commitments from the government. Will any of the new funding in this year’s budget for family violence services and new refuges be allocated to Hume?
