Welcome to the latest edition of AWAVA’s Weekly Round-Up. This week, the Queensland government took a very positive step in announcing that it will trial a specialist domestic violence court. We are pleased to see that significant steps are being taken to improve women’s access to justice and are looking forward to future developments in this area. Please subscribe to our newsletter to stay informed about the future of the domestic violence court, as well as other news from the responding to violence against women sector.
