Domestic violence prevention

Shelter SA has released a joint summary of our domestic violence prevention versus crisis management research report, and its subsequent workshop report. In line with the recommendations from the two reports published last year, Shelter SA has issued a media release underlining the lack of preventative strategies in place and calling for a State-wide implementation of domestic violence education programs in schools. Following trends on social media, we have also published an opinion piece by Sorcha Walshe and Dr. Alice Clark, covering the relationship between viral movements such as #MeToo, and gender inequality and power. Homelessness and domestic violence are closely linked, with a great majority of abuse victims struggling to establish a safe and affordable home in the private rental market.
