Stop Domestic Violence Conference Australia

The 3rd STOP Domestic Violence Conference Australia will be held at Rydges Melbourne from Monday 4 – Tuesday 5 December, followed by half day workshops on Wednesday 6 December 2017.

This year the conference will embark on the theme of ‘Domestic Violence Does Not Discriminate’ with nine featured speakers and over 50 expert stream/ workshop presenters.  The conference aims to provide a platform for a unified national voice on ending domestic violence.

We feel safer when we think domestic violence happens somewhere else to someone else. In reality, men, women and children of all races, orientation and social standing can be affected by domestic violence. Whether it is physical, social, financial, verbal, psychological, spiritual, sexual or emotional – domestic violence can leave scars on those affected. Our human basic needs of comfort and security are violated when violence is common, impacting home life, the work place and the community.
