ABC Regional and 1800RESPECT partnership to help women in times of disaster

1800RESPECT in partnership with the Gender and Disaster Pod have produced a community service announcement (CSA) to raise awareness of the increased risk of gendered violence in times of disaster.

Supported by ABC Regional the CSA promotes the important role a friend, family member or frontline worker can play in supporting a woman at risk of or experiencing domestic violence.

The CSA will be heard in regional areas on local radio, ABC TV, and seen across ABC Regional social media platforms.

In addition to the CSA, 1800RESPECT and the Gender and Disaster Pod produced resources to support women in regional and remote communities. The resources can be found on the website.
