No To Violence chief executive Jacqui Watt will join The West Live this morning to discuss increased family violence throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

No To Violence is Australia’s largest peak body for working directly with violent men and operates the Men’s Referral Service which provides telephone counselling and referral.

Ms Watt is expected to discuss why family violence have hit record highs during lockdowns and the strong demand the organisation's telephone counselling and referral service has had.

Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Steph Bond will also join podcast host Jenna Clarke to discuss the State's weather and what conditions football fans can expect for the West Coast Eagles' elimination final against Collingwood at Perth's Optus Stadium on Saturday.

Later on the show, Sunrise Perth correspondent Elle Georgiou will also join Clarke to update West Australian’s on the latest news headlines.

After 9.15am, Perth Now editor Natalie Richards will be on the podcast to share some quirky stories from across the State in the Wild West segment.

TUNE IN HERE AT 8.45AM.
