The AWAVA team would like to congratulate Prime Minister-elect Tony Abbott and the Coalition on their federal election victory. We look forward to working with the new Government and progressing the important work of preventing and eliminating violence against women and girls. Given the domination of intense election coverage from almost all media outlets over the last two weeks, AWAVA is delighted to present a special Double Edition of the Weekly Round-Up. We’ve condensed our bulletin to help reduce the information flow that we have all no doubt been wading through. Next week, it will be back to business as usual for the Weekly Round-Up!

We would also like to extend our warm and heartfelt congratulations to AWAVA Advisory Group member organisation, Women’s Refuge Movement NSW, who are now Domestic Violence NSW. The launch of their new website marks an important moment for the preventing violence against women sector in NSW and the broader Australian community.
