Full Stop Australia, Tara Hunter
Full Stop Australia (FSA) has a 50-year legacy providing specialist sexual, domestic, and family violence support services.
In the lead-up to World Mental Health Day, on the 4th of October 2023, we welcomed Full Stop Australia on the reality that 1 in 3 women will experience physical and/or sexual abuse in her lifetime.
FSA provides free and confidential 24/7 telephone, online and face-to-face counselling, best-practice training and professional services to support safe and respectful workplaces, educational environments and communities.
What does Full Stop Australia do?
Our mission is to pull a full stop to sexual, domestic and family violence. How we action that on a daily basis is through the three pillars to our organisation: 24/7 trauma specialist counselling services (over the phone, online and face-to-face), face-to-face services across, we have training and consultancy services, and we are at the front line working with victims and organisations.
What are some of the key indicators or changes you’re seeing in the levels of violence against women in Australia?
People that experience sexual, domestic and family violence often have other vulnerabilities. Examples include living with a disability or coming from a culturally and linguistically diverse background where a whole range of factors mean that people in different communities might experience violence at an increased level. But we know they experiences barriers like accessing services.
