A person experiencing violence should never have to pick between their safety and financial security. Temporary visa holders often have to overcome extra hurdles to escape family and domestic violence.
In order to help such people, the Government has increased the financial assistance provided to temporary visa holders facing domestic violence from $3,000 to $5,000.
The government has also pledged $4.4 million over two years for the increment, which is aimed at helping nearly 2000 people nationally.
The funding adds to the $38.2 million designated to delay the Temporary Visa Holders Experiencing Violence Pilot and Escaping Violence Payment trail until 31 January 2025.
