Big Step Towards Reducing Family Violence

New Family Violence Death Review Committee Is Another Big Step Towards Reducing Family Violence

Liz Kinley, CEO Strategic Operations, thinks the formation of the Family Violence Death Review Committee is going to mean working towards a safer environment for our children to grow up in.

Ms Kinley’s comments follow the announcement today that a Family Violence Death Review Committee will be established with the goal of reducing family violence and family violence deaths.

That means we all share responsibility for making sure that the findings of this committee are listened to and acted on, so that our children can grow up safely, now and in the future.”
