Last week AWAVA amplified the concerns of its member organisations and joined Community Legal Centres and other community sector organisations to write to NSW Minister Pru Goward about potential issues with child protection changes in the State. Read the open letter to the Minister here, the letter signed by various community groups argues that the proposed reforms could disproportionately affect vulnerable and disadvantaged people. AWAVA also joined its Sister National Women’s Alliance, Equality Rights Alliance (ERA), for the ERA workshop and strategy session on housing and gendered well-being
