Luke Batty Foundation to Close as Rosie Batty Steps Down

Acclaimed domestic violence campaigner Rosie Batty is stepping down as CEO of the Luke Batty Foundation, with the foundation set to “close its doors” and distribute funds to other not-for-profit family violence initiatives.

Batty gained national attention in 2014 after her 11-year-old son Luke was murdered by his father at a cricket oval in Tyabb.

She then became a key advocate for DV reform in Australia, creating the Luke Batty Foundation and the Never Alone campaign to support women and children affected by family violence.

Last Friday, Batty announced she was stepping down as CEO of the foundation to “take time to breathe”.

As a result, the foundation will be wound down, with funds distributed to “appropriate not-for-profit family violence initiatives in line with the purpose of the foundation”.
