TWF 10: Nicolle Edwards on Family Violence And How To End It

One of the saddest parts of what’s meant to be an incredibly happy, warm and joyous month is that December is a peak period for family violence in Australia. 

In Australia 1 domestic violence incidence takes place every 2 minutes. One in three women have experienced physical or sexual violence by someone known to them. Sexual assault and domestic violence are the most common crimes committed in Australia. 

This episode of The Wealth Faculty is an invitation to all of us to rise up and over the epidemic that is domestic violence. 

Nicolle Edwards is the Founder of RizeUp Australia and has helped over 1000 women and families relocate, restart their lives and RizeUp. 

If you’re inspired to help us end family violence in Australia, you can support RizeUp for as little as $2 per week. All the details are at
