Michael Costigan and our ambassador Marlene Tighe joined the students at St Clare's College in Canberra to discuss the importance of respectful relationships. Having these conversations early makes such a difference.
Thank you for joining the Tara Costigan Foundation for our first Angel Gala Ball in Canberra on August 5.
Earlier this year, our National Family Violence Summit brought together survivors, community organisations, researchers and more to find the next steps to end family violence.
On Tuesday, our CEO Michael Costigan delivered our expert Report from the Summit to Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and Opposition Leader Bill Shorten. It sets out what needs to happen next to end this crisis. Read it and take action today!
One highlight of recent weeks was a beautiful swim and family day held by Aqua Harmony in Kambah, raising funds for Tara’s Angels.
Jody, one of the swim teachers there, contacted TCF to hold a fundraiser... out of that Tara's Swim for Change was born.
On the Saturday of our recent National Family Violence Summit, Canberrans came out in force to demand change to the cycle of family violence at the second Tara's Walk for Change.
The Tara Costigan Foundation held the first National Family Violence Summit in March and it was a fantastic success, bringing together front-line workers, DV survivors, political leaders and experts.
The Prime Minister and Opposition Leader addressed the Summit, which also featured discussions about media involvement, warning signs, root causes and legal perspectives on family violence. During the Prime Minister’s speech, he said that Tara's death and story was a reminder of the reality of those caught in the scourge of domestic violence.
What the Tara Costigan Foundation has been able to achieve in such a short timeframe is quite extraordinary and it is thanks to the goodwill of our supporters, big and small.
