Joint submission to the ACT Domestic, Family and Sexual Violence Strategy

1 May 2024

In this joint submission, ACTCOSS has joined with nine other organisations to call on the ACT Government to develop a comprehensive and ambitious Domestic, Family and Sexual Violence Strategy in the ACT. The ACT currently has no such strategy, and the draft Strategy that has been proposed is a welcome step, but falls short of what is needed to generate meaningful and sustained change. In this submission, we call for a more meaningful and targeted engagement process with victim survivors and marginalised communities; the adoption of more ambitious priorities for change with a clearer framework for measuring and monitoring performance; and consideration of the role of all parts of government in leading and being accountable for the change that is needed.
