As always, there have been a large number of news stories from around the sector during the last week. Footballer Adam Goodes was named Australian of the Year. His strong advocacy around preventing violence against women and in particular domestic violence is greatly welcomed by AWAVA, with the recognition that a strong commitment to eliminating violence against women is necessary from all parts of society. We would like to wish him our sincere congratulations on this award.
