Many women experiencing gendered violence in rural and remote areas also face challenges in accessing limited local support services.

1800RESPECT in collaboration with the Gender and Disaster Pod (, experts in the field of violence in times of disaster, have developed resources to assist frontline workers to increase the safety and support of women in times of disaster.   
Join this webinar to find out more about this important issue and how to respond.  The webinar will include an insight into research conducted by Women’s Health Goulburn North East (WHGNE) and Monash University’s Injury Research Institute (MIRI), with funding from the National Disaster Resilience Grants Scheme (NDRGS). It will also include an overview of the new 1800RESPECT resources available to assist frontline workers to support women.
