As part of the National Advocacy Group on Women on Temporary Visas Experiencing Violence, AWAVA has joined over 60 state and national peak bodies, service providers, researchers and other organisations across Australia to call for increased action to ensure that all women experiencing violence in Australia are able to access the help they and their children need to be safe, regardless of migration status.

In an open letter to parliamentarians and politicians, the National Advocacy Group details four key areas of reform needed to better support women on temporary visas experiencing violence, including in relation to the migration system, eligibility for social security and Medicare, funding for specialist services, and access to social housing.
