Locals experiencing domestic and family violence will soon receive tailored, multi-agency support with the roll out of Safer Pathway in the Liverpool and Green Valley Local Area Commands later this year.
Holsworthy MP Melanie Gibbons and the Minister for the Prevention of Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Pru Goward announced the September 2017 roll out at Liverpool police station last week.
Ms Gibbons said: “Safer Pathway will be an integral part of our community response to tackling domestic violence.”

Ms Goward said the Safer Pathway program aimed to ensure every domestic violence victims receive consistent and effective responses.
“Courageous victims who have been left traumatised and terrified will have easier access to the services they need. They will no longer have to re-tell their story to a multitude of government agencies,” Ms Goward said.
The program brings together government and local non-government services, creating a streamlined, intergrated referral pathway for victims who are at threat to their life, health or safety.
