“If Luke hadn’t died in such an extreme way, I’d just be one of those ‘family violence’ people no one listens to”. Rosie Batty

Never Alone, joint the campaignThe Luke Batty Foundation was established in February 2014 after Luke Batty was killed by his father at cricket practice in Tyabb, Victoria, on Wednesday 12 February 2014.

Everyone in Australia was hugely affected by the manner in which Luke was killed and communities from far and wide responded generously by sending to Luke’s mum Rosie, hundreds of cards, an abundance of beautiful flowers, and donations, both large and small.

The response was so overwhelming that it inspired Rosie to set up the Luke Batty Foundation with the goal to raise funds to support women and children affected by the trauma of family violence.

Please consider supporting Rosie to achieve her goal in Luke’s memory.

“I want to tell everybody that family violence happens to everybody. No matter how nice your house is, how intelligent you are. It happens to anyone and everyone”. Rosie Batty February 2014
