FAMILY AND DOMESTIC VIOLENCE — SERVICE DELIVERY

600. Hon ALISON XAMON to the Leader of the House representing the Minister for Child Protection:

I refer to funding of family and domestic violence counselling advocacy and support service contracts.

(1)  Is the minister aware that the costs for delivering these services have risen significantly above government funding levels over the past six years and that there is now a serious risk that available services will be reduced as a result?

FAMILY AND DOMESTIC VIOLENCE — FRONTLINE SERVICES

HON ALISON XAMON (North Metropolitan) [5.30 pm]: I rise to make some comments about serious concerns I have about the reduction of frontline family and domestic violence services. The services I am referring to this evening are called family and domestic violence counselling, advocacy and support services, and they are currently delivered across WA by 17 different service providers. These are really vital services. They support people who attend police stations and provide crisis response and counselling across metropolitan, regional and remote Western Australia.
