2017-18 Annual Progress Report

The 2017-18 Annual Progress Report of the Third Action Plan 2016-19 of the National Plan to Reduce Violence against Women and their Children 2010-2022 has been released.

At the commencement of the National Plan, the Australian, state and territory governments committed to annual reporting on the progress of the National Plan and its associated Action Plans.

The 2017–18 report provides a selection of activities undertaken between July 2017 and June 2018 that contribute to the six National Priority Areas and provides an indication of investment by jurisdictions during this time. It also tracks the nature and extent of violence against women between 2005 and 2016, based on data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics’ Personal Safety Survey as well as measuring people’s understanding of and attitudes towards gender equality and violence against women through the National Community Attitudes towards Violence against Women Survey.

It demonstrates the collective effort by Australian, state and territory governments in 2017-18 to implement activities contributing to the six National Priority Areas and provides an indication of investment by jurisdictions during this time.
