The National Summit on Women’s Safety is being held on the 6-7th September. It’s an essential step towards the development of the next National Plan to end violence against women and children, enhancing the existing National Plan. It will build on key findings and address evolving issues across the sector.

The Summit will bring together a range of experts, advocates, service providers and people with lived experience to explore issues faced by women and their children experiencing violence in Australia.

Ahead of this, a broad range of delegates representing the rights and interests of migrant and refugee women, have released a joint statement calling for action on the unique barriers that this cohort of women often face in Australia. Read the statement here.
