New funding has been announced to support domestic violence crisis centres in Brisbane and Townsville, and assist in the setup of a third shelter in Charters Towers. Minister for the Prevention of Domestic and Family Violence, Shannon Fentiman, said tackling domestic and family violence is a priority, and these programs have helped hundreds of women and children. Save the Children runs the Brisbane based centre, and regional co-ordinator Theresa Kellet spoke about what the funding will be used for.
