Femili PNG works closely with government, service providers and other groups to strengthen responses and get better outcomes for survivors of FSV.
We are dedicated to improving the services and facilities available for survivors by working closely with local stakeholders and partners such as the police, courts, safe houses, the Family Support Centres, welfare, and others.
Some of the ways we have contributed include high-level representation such as preparing submissions for government inquiries, holding regular core service providers meetings, and sharing our lessons learned.
On a national level, we work in partnership with organisations such as the Family and Sexual Violence Action Committee to advocate for better services and support for survivors across PNG.
