Endorsers & Media Partners
The Women’s Council for Domestic and Family Violence Services (WCDFVS), formerly the Women’s Refuge Group of WA Inc, was established in 1977 and is now representing 64 Women’s Refuges and domestic and family violence services in Western Australia.
The WCDFVS is a state-wide peak organisation committed to improving the status of women and children in society. We seek to ensure that all women and children live free of domestic and family violence.
Our role is to provide a voice on domestic and family violence issues that facilitates and promotes policy, legislative and programmatic responses relevant to women and children who have experienced domestic and family violence. The WCDFVS operates from a feminist perspective and proactively advocates for social justice in order to further empowerment, access, equity and safety for all women and children.
Stopping Family Violence
Stopping Family Violence is a new not for profit established in Western Australia to drive forward the agenda of perpetrator response and grow the evidence base that supports this work.
The purpose of the organisation is to work in partnership with women and children’s services, policy makers and researchers to provide leadership in the area of family and domestic violence perpetrator response. These collaborations will facilitate activities such as advocacy, workforce development, research and program development.
Stopping Family Violence has been created as an independent body in WA to work with program providers, government, victim and children’s services, and research and training bodies around perpetrator response and intervention.
In order to remain independent SFV will not engage in service delivery that puts it in direct competition with members of the network. Instead SFV will focus its efforts on developing the skills, knowledge and evidence base of the sector through research and pilot activities.
