Stopping sexual assault and domestic violence - Full Stop.
The Full Stop Foundation is proud to work with our Ambassadors who are all committed to supporting our vision of a society in which sexual assault and domestic violence no longer exist.
Adair Donaldson, Founder and Director of Donaldson Law
"I am very honoured to play a part in assisting the Full Stop Foundation in raising awareness of violence against women and helping to reduce the rates of sexual assault and domestic violence in Australia.
I have been fortunate to work in partnership with the team at Rape and Domestic Violence Services Australia over the last 7 years and I am very proud to be able to advocate on their behalf."
Alan combines compassion and excellent leadership skills as an Ambassador for the NRL’s Voice against Violence program. Alan shares our passion to raise awareness and understands the importance of inspiring and engaging young people and works consistently to change the culture of family and domestic violence with his outstanding mentoring and education programs.
I fully support those aims and I am proud to be a Full Stop Ambassador” .
“As someone who has worked for many years researching these issues I am proud to be associated with an organisation that is at the forefront of best practice approaches to counselling and prevention. In Karen Willis, the Executive Officer of Rape and Domestic Violence Services Australia, we have an outstanding and experienced advocate of change in an area where so much remains to be done.”
Dixie Link Gordon is an advocate against domestic violence and sexual assault who leads with compassion and has worked across many women’s services including Mudgin-Gal Aboriginal Women’s Centre and Women’s Legal Service NSW.
“I am so delighted be an Ambassador for the Full Stop Foundation and continue to support “Hey Sis” which I co - founded with Ashlee Donohue & Karen Willis, Executive Officer of Rape and Domestic Violence Services Australia. This is a support program for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women. These women have been the backbone of a system supporting communities in dealing with situations of abuse such as rape, incest and other forms of sexual abuse, as well as domestic and family violence. We need to empower these women so they are able to continue standing up against sexual violence in their communities. With support and funding from the Full Stop Foundation, we can give them the tools to work within their communities to stop sexual assault from happening”

Spending her time inspiring and encouraging the wider community to accept diversity, Drisana promotes the Deaf community as one without borders and one of rich language. Recognising that women with disabilities are 40% more likely to be the victims of domestic violence than women without disabilities, Drisana supports the Full Stop Foundation to continue to provide accessible and appropriate counselling support for those who have experienced or who are at risk of sexual assault, family or domestic violence and their non offending supporters.
Mary Konstantopoulos, Founder of Ladies Who League
"Violence against women and children is completely unacceptable in any context. Unfortunately we still live in a world where gendered violence is still a problem our society is dealing with.
As a person who is passionate about gender equality and who truly believes in the importance of respect, I am so proud to work with an organisation like the Full Stop Foundation which has such a vital role in raising awareness about violence against women, and educating and supporting our communities until sexual assault and domestic violence are completely eradicated.
We all have a role to play and I stand with the Full Stop Foundation to help create a more equal and tolerant world."
Nina Funnell, author, Our Watch Walkley award-winning journalist and advocate against violence against women.
“As a community, we all have an obligation to come together to put a full stop to sexual assault and domestic violence. Having spent many years speaking out and reporting on these issues, it is a tremendous privilege to be invited to be an ambassador to the Full Stop Foundation.
The Full Stop Foundation does vital work in funding research and prevention efforts which stop the violence at its source, while also providing support to those whose lives have been impacted by sexual assault and domestic violence. If we are serious about addressing this issue and supporting survivors, then we must stand united in declaring that such violence is absolutely unacceptable.”
“I am proud to accept a role as an Ambassador for the Full Stop Foundation and, in doing so, hopes to raise awareness about issues such as rape and domestic violence amongst Australia’s sporting communities”.
"I support the Full Stop Foundation because of its multi-faceted approach to the problem of domestic violence. Every call to 1800 RESPECT must be answered, because this service saves lives. I also endorse supporting the "Hey Sis" program, to assist Indigenous women who are already taking a stand. The Men's Behaviour Change program is crucial, as we need to work with the perpetrators as well as those living with violence."
