My constituency question is directed to the terrific new Minister for Prevention of Family Violence. Minister, how is the Orange Door, inner east, in Box Hill supporting my constituents as their local point of contact following a family violence crisis? When I was an electorate officer in the last term of Parliament I would often assist constituents in finding resources to escape family violence. In 2019 Labor members from the other house provided us with contacts for those experiencing domestic violence. I would like to give a shout-out to the Eastern Community Legal Centre; Uniting Vic.Tas; the Salvation Army; Launch Housing; SECASA, the South Eastern Centre Against Sexual Assault; and EDVOS, the Eastern Domestic Violence Service. In September 2021 the Orange Door in Box Hill opened, providing a new resource for those in the eastern suburbs. Since the Orange Door program began in 2018 the service has helped more than 100,000 Victorians. I am proud to be part of a Labor government that has implemented the Orange Door as a recommendation from the 2016 Royal Commission into Family Violence. I look forward to the minister’s response.
