Brimbank & Maribyrnong Interfaith Network: Spiritual Care and Family Violence Forum for Chaplains and Pastoral Carers
Australian consciousness of family violence and violence against women and children is extending beyond the level where we have been for about forty years. A major contributor to making us more aware is Rosie Batty, 2015 Australian of the Year. Our nation is the middle of a rethink and an extension of our knowledge. Because of this, please consider this event.
