Every 8 days a woman in Australia loses her life at the hands of a current or former partner. A child loses their life every 2 weeks through domestic family violence. Since the age of 15, 1 in 3 Australian women have experienced sexual or physical violence from a current or former partner. Women experiencing domestic violence are x3 more likely to attempt suicide. It takes on average 8 times for a woman to leave a violent partner; this increases when she has children. The cost of living crisis is making it harder for women and children to leave dangerous situations, our rental crisis means there is often nowhere to go so the options are: stay where it is unsafe or sleep in a car or sofa surf with children.
Gender based violence has devastating effects on women and their children, even when the violence and abuse stops, the trauma lives on. This year some of the Walk for WAGEC funds will go towards the ACCESS MENTORING PROGRAM: designed by WAGEC for women 18+ in Greater Sydney. WAGEC trained volunteer mentors support women to set and achieve wellbeing, training and employment goals. These relationships are fundamental to trauma recovery, to enable women to rebuild their confidence and their lives.
