POLICY & ADVOCACY
Our policy and advocacy work is informed by the work we do with survivors of violence and other vulnerable groups in society - our clients’ experiences help us identify and understand where change is needed.
In order for our work to have a lasting and sustainable impact we know that we need to support government to improve the law, policies and practices.
We use both public and private advocacy as well as making policy recommendations to encourage the realization of rights and improve the protections for survivors of violence and others at risk.
We work across a number of areas, conducting research and analysis, producing research papers, stimulating critical dialogue, and increasing public awareness to achieve real change for survivors and people at risk.
