Greens 'promise' $5 billion for DV services

THE Greens have promised a $5 billion plan to boost the funding of domestic violence services and crisis centres over the next decade.

The party has pledged to work on a new national agreement for DV services that would include $500 million a year for the next 10 years.

It also includes $100 million over two years to build new homeless shelters and women-specific shelters, as well as $144 million for legal services to help prevent family violence among indigenous Australians.

With polls showing the voting could be close, the Greens' policy could form part of an agreement with one of the major parties if the election does not result in a majority government.
