Fourth action plan: National plan to reduce violence against women and their children 2010-2022

This is COAG's 12-year National Plan which aims to connect the important work being done by all Australian governments, community organisations and individuals to ensure that each year, fewer women experience violence and more women and their children live safely. The plan sets out eight key principles, five national priorities and specifies six outcomes from the implementation of the plan. The national priorities are that (i) primary prevention is key; (ii) extra support is needed for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and children; (iii) respect, listen and respond to the diverse lived experience and knowledge of women and their children affected by violence; (iv) respond to sexual violence and sexual harassment; and (v) improve support and service system responses.
