Petition: Fully fund sexual violence support and prevention services in Budget 2019

November 30, 2018 at 10:58 AM

From ActionStation

ActionStation are petitioning the government to fully fund sexual violence support and prevention services. They are delivering the petition to Parliament on December 6 and their goal is to reach 10,000 signatures by Wednesday next week.

The petition requests that the government puts in place policies and makes funding decisions in upcoming government budgets that ensure:

  • All secondary, primary and ECE schools are champions of healthy relationships and consent. This includes training and support for all teachers and administrative staff and the implementation of universal, best-practice, culture and age appropriate primary prevention sexuality education, including education on healthy relationships and consent;
  • There is enough government funding available for nationwide coverage of Kaupapa Māori and other culturally-appropriate, accessible and properly resourced specialist sexual violence support services to provide 24/7 early intervention following recent sexual assault and ongoing interventions when and where needed;
  • We have locally accessible, free, best-practice and culturally appropriate services for self-referral by people who are at risk of causing harm as well as those who have already caused harm and want to change their behaviour.
