PartnerSPEAK chair Natalie Walker plans to roll out the service in Mildura.

NATALIE Walker had been married just two years when she discovered her then-husband had been secretly accessing child pornography on their home computer.

It was the depths of despair thereafter, just when she needed support, that prompted her to found and now chair PartnerSPEAK (Stopping Pornographic Exploitation Against Kids) – a support service for partners of online child sex offenders.

Formed and now based in Melbourne, Ms Walker now plans to include Mildura in a rollout of regional centres to offer support and guidance to local individuals who had been affected by their partners’ involvement in child abuse material.
