Refuge supports call for release of Domestic Violence report

Women’s Refuge are supporting the call for the Government to release a December 2013 report considering New Zealand’s domestic violence problem.

“This report was commissioned by the Government in urgency and the report writers were given very little time to complete their work. “We have been asking for this report since December,” says Women’s Refuge spokesperson Kiri Hannifin. “Given the speed in which this report was undertaken and the limited consultation that occurred as a result, the on-going delay appears disingenuous.”

“This report is one of several reports Women’s Refuge has been attempting to obtain from Government agencies. It is our view these reports would give us valuable insights and information about Domestic Violence trends in in New Zealand. We want this information because we believe it would enable us and other service providers to improve how we respond to and prevent this critical issue.”
