Eliminating family violence is a priority for the Tasmanian Liberal Government.
The Tasmanian Government White Ribbon Walk held today is an important symbol of whole of community effort to eradicate this appalling social evil.
The focus of this year’s event is generational change and teaching young Tasmanians to value respectful relationships, which is a crucial factor in breaking the cycle of family violence.
Under our nation leading Family Violence Action we are providing additional resources and supports to assist the victims of family violence, hold perpetrators to account and drive the positive cultural change needed to eliminate family violence.
If you or someone you know is impacted by family violence call the Safe at Home Family Violence Response and Referral Line on 1800 633 937 or visit www.1800respect.org.au. In an emergency, always call 000.
