Moo Baulch | CEO of Domestic Violence NSW
Moo Baulch is chief executive of Domestic Violence NSW, the state peak body for specialist domestic and family violence (DFV) services. She is part of a small team that works to improve policy and practice responses to women, children and communities impacted by violence.
Moo has worked in the non-government, not for profit sector in Australia, South East Asia, the UK and Spain over the last couple of decades. She believes that public awareness of domestic and family violence and sexual assault is at an unprecedented level and that cross-sector and community partnerships are key to the cultural and practical changes required for inclusive support.
She looks forward to the day when all children are taught in schools about the intersections between discrimination, bullying, violence and healthy respectful relationships.
