VICTIMS of family violence in Melbourne’s West are not getting the support they need owing to a significant shortage in refuges. Women’s Health West chief executive Dr Robyn Gregory says the west needs at least two more refuges to cater for victims. The western suburbs urgently need at least two more refuges for women who are fleeing extreme family violence, the head of Women’s Health West says.
