Why is it so Hard in the Country?

There is limited data on the prevalence of violence against women in Regional, Rural and Remote WA communities.
However, what we do know is that rates of intimate partner violence are higher than in capital cities.
There are unique challenges for people experiencing violence in country areas. Check out our CBH Group sponsored video here which goes into detail about what these unique barriers and challenges are.
We understand what it is like living in Regional, Rural and Remote WA and the associated safety, challenges and implications.
When you are ready to talk, we are here to listen.
