The womens centres in the the federal state of Lower Austria have to fight with two main problems these days. All 6 centres are used to the full capacity, which is nontypical during the summer, and the financing for next year is completely outstanding for the most part.
The provincial government of Lower Austria wants to negotiate new contracts. The discussions about it already takes some months. Reason for the financial problems next year is the end of the financial support from the job centre. It’s possible that the provincial government is going to increase its benefits.
Womens centres push the panic button. Men are more violent during the holiday season. Usually the family spends more time together which mostly ends in disputes and violence. Holiday season in Austria means more violence in the family, also reports the Austrian Broadcasting Corporation.
