The Andrews Labor Government, this week, released new details of Australia’s first Support and Safety Hubs, which will be established in Victoria to protect women and children from violence.
Special Minister of State Gavin Jennings today released the Support and Safety Hubs: A Statewide Concept report, which sets out how the Hubs will work, including their scope, how people will access their services, who will work within the Hubs and how they will connect and coordinate with relevant agencies.
The Victorian Budget 2017/18 invested $448.1 million to establish 17 Support and Safety Hubs across the state. The first Hubs will be launched in the Barwon, Bayside Peninsula, Inner Gippsland, Mallee and North-East Melbourne DHHS regions later this year.
