My name is Carly Webb and I write a blog called Diaries From Domestic Violence.
Myself and two other lovely ladies, also victims want to bring change to this issue. The 4th STOP Domestic Violence Conference on the Gold Coast in December will be the first step for us. We plan to eventually make an app which will solve some of the issues we faced when it comes to domestic violence.
I personally have experience with roadblocks such as wrongful termination as a result of the violence, family court custody battles, housing issues, real estate issues, issues with police and lack of willingness to respond, court systems outside of family court, issues with members of parliament, family law lawyers, legal aid issues, humiliation by family members, issues with my sons school, patenting orders not being adhered and ignored, finance issues, Centrelink issues, QLD health issues and the list goes on.
I want to attempt to make change from my experience and bring an understanding of the issues faced. This conference will be a great opportunity for myself and my lovely friend who also brings years of knowledge and understanding to this issue. We both having been through traumatic experience just want to help and make this a better place for our children to grow up.
Understanding is the first step to making any real change.
We thank you for your support and wish you all a happy and safe life.
