MINISTER FOR WOMEN’S SAFETY VISITS BONNER - The Community Leader and Real Estate New and Views


Recently, Minister for Women’s Safety and Minister for Families and Social Services, Senator the Hon Anne Ruston visited the Bonner electorate to bring attention at a local level to our Government’s agenda when it comes to women’s safety ahead of the delivery of the Budget.

The Senator’s visit was timely as the month of May marked Queensland Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Month. As part of the visit, I hosted a pre-Budget Women in Business breakfast event at the Wynnum Golf Club where I was able to sponsor six students from Brisbane Bayside State College, Moreton Bay College and Wynnum High to come along and hear from Senator Ruston.

Following this, the Senator and I attended a roundtable I had convened at Beyond DV’s centre. During Treasurer Josh Frydenberg’s Budget delivery speech, he reiterated the urgency of domestic violence response and prevention, with this year’s Budget containing a historic $1 billion for women’s safety measures.

The visit provided a meaningful opportunity for Senator Ruston and I to hear from survivors of domestic violence and listen the needs of the community when it comes to women’s safety.
