Full Stop Foundation
Anyone who experiences sexual or domestic violence has a right to access high quality support services and criminal justice responses, however these will always arrive all too late – after the violence has occurred.
- More people recognise the issue of Rape & Domestic Violence today than at any time over the last 20 years. NSW Crime figures show the number of reports has increased by 130% in that time.
In Australia, there are around 13,155 individual cases of rape, domestic violence and child abuse a year – that’s 36 individual cases per day.
We need more than awareness - we need to prevent the violence from happening.
The Full Stop Foundation is about stopping sexual assault and domestic violence – Full Stop.
As an initiative of Rape & Domestic Violence Services Australia, the Full Stop Foundation will:
- Lead in the prevention of sexual, domestic and family violence in Australia through innovative and results driven programs.
- Resource the work of Rape & Domestic Violence Services Australia in their support of those who have experienced sexual assault or domestic violence and their non-offending supporters.
- Assist all Australians to be part of the solution and implement initiatives to raise awareness.
Our focus is on prevention and engaging with individuals, foundations, business and community leaders to drive meaningful change to achieve our vision of a society in which sexual assault and domestic violence no longer exist.
