The National Council of Social Service network will be launching a Climate Statement as they head into summer this year. To demonstrate the impact that the climate crisis is already have on the health and well-being of our communities, we are seeking stories and case examples. They are looking for:
- Written stories – NCOSS staff can talk to you over the phones and take the story down, or you can email us a story directly.
- People with lived experience, and practitioners who support them, who would be willing to speak directly to media about their experiences.
NCOSS has heard in regional consultations previously about the effect that drought and other climate crises have on the demand for DV support services and women’s shelters. NCOSS is wondering whether there may be any stories or case studies (e.g. from services) in the DV sector that might demonstrate this?
They are hoping to collect these stories and case studies by late October. If you would like to discuss further, please contact Jacquelyn Johnson, Project Officer Advocacy on 8960 7916.
