18 May 2017 - Nurse Domestic Violence Training

For women living in rural communities, it can be significantly harder to access specialist support services. A severe and worsening lack of funding means that domestic violence services often have to serve large geographical areas. The services themselves are generally based in urban areas because the population is larger and more concentrated, and many services were originally set up through community activism which is easier in urban areas.
