No to Violence welcomes the $8.5 million funding for initiatives aimed at early intervention to prevent domestic, family and sexual violence announced in the Federal Budget.

No to Violence Chief Executive Officer Jacqui Watt welcomed the Federal Government’s commitment to holding men who choose to use violence and abuse to account.

The $8.5 million over four years includes developing a perpetrator risk assessment framework for frontline service providers, extending the Mensline Changing for Good Service and developing a national perpetrator referral database.

This funding forms part of an additional $589.3 million for women’s safety and follows its initial $1.7 billion investment over six years in the October Budget.
