Last week we were proud to launch the Telstra Safe Connections program, helping women impacted by domestic violence to stay safely connected to their friends, family and essential services.

In a partnership with the Women’s Services Network (WESNET), each year we will provide 5000 new smartphones, $30 pre-paid credit and information on the safe use of technology to women escaping domestic violence.

Domestic and family violence is a very significant issue in our society, currently impacting around one in three women in their lifetime.

We are also a proud supporter of White Ribbon, Australia’s male-led campaign to end violence against women. As a White Ribbon accredited workplace, we will continue to take active steps to stop violence against women, including advocating on the issue.
