1679. Hon Alison Xamon to the minister representing the Minister for Police:

I refer to the Western Australia Police family violence special case team, and I ask:

(a)  do members of the team receive cultural competency training specific to addressing family and domestic violence issues in culturally and linguistically diverse families;

(b)  if yes to (a):

(i)  please provide information on the nature and extent of any cultural competency training;

Family and domestic violence services must have funding certainty

Organisations delivering services to victims of family and domestic violence (FDV) must be guaranteed long-term funding, Greens spokesperson for Prevention of Family and Domestic Violence Hon Alison Xamon MLC has said.

Speaking in Parliament ahead of the 28th Annual Silent Domestic Violence Memorial March, Ms Xamon said FDV was a complex issue with many causes and sustainable funding was crucial to preventing it.
