WITH reports of domestic violence in Maribyrnong almost tripling in the past four years, a leading women’s health service is calling for at least two more refuges in the west… The submission reports that a new purpose-built centre with crisis accommodation and counselling and therapy rooms was “long overdue”. Women’s Health West chief executive Robyn Gregory said the west had just two women’s refuges, the lowest number across metropolitan Melbourne.
