ACT Government: Fund action on family violence

Tara's Angels

Tara was a Canberra Girl. One death in our community from domestic and family violence is one too many.

It’s time for the Canberra Government to support our Tara's Angels. Tara's Angels will be directly helping women, men and children in our community, giving them the long-term support they need to get back on their feet -- at no cost to the victim.

Let's make Canberra a better place.

Sign the petition for fair funding of Tara’s Angels so we can give vital support to victims of family violence.

I ask the ACT Government to fund Tara's Angels and action on domestic and family violence in the ACT Budget.

    Domestic violence – it’s killing innocent mothers/babies of our society – we need to get into victims everyday lives give them tools & strategies and protection. We can’t fix this problem behind desks and peices of paper !

    Great idea – not enough funding is given to this cause.

    My partner killed himself in front of me in an effort to get my attention.

    last month I was preparing to go to court to give evidence for my sister, I was there to give evidence of what I had seen after she was abused by her ex husband. The morning I was to going to court, I was so frightened, so scared. I knew he would be in the court room,I was sick with worry.


    As I was driving to the court, I saw a Tara Costigan foundation truck parked. As I drove out of the car park where the truck was parked, I stopped and looked at the truck briefly..I thought of Tara and her beautiful family, it was then I knew I had to speak up for what is right…stand up for not only my sister but for all women of domestic violence. Tara helped me so much on this day, it gave me strength and courage to speak up.


    I truly hope the funding is high on the agenda of the government, what an amazing foundation.


    Rest in peace beautiful Tara xo


    I am happy for this to be published, but please do not publish my name to protect my sister as the court case has not finished.
