Women’s Health West have compiled some key statistics and information about our year to date.
The flyer provides a snapshot of the demand on our services, and some of the challenges and successes we’ve had so far this financial year. The information covers the period 1 July 2016 – 30 April 2017.
- We received 9,297 police family violence referrals.
- We supported 1,073 women at court, and provided 243 children with counselling support.
- We have experienced a significant decrease in ongoing recurrent family violence funding relative to non-recurrent funding in recent years, which impacts significantly on our ability to offer staff permanent contracts and sustainably plan for growth.
