Our Watch is an independent, not for profit organisation established to drive nationwide change in culture, behaviours and power imbalances to prevent violence against women and their children.
The Commonwealth and Victorian governments established Our Watch as a key initiative under the National Plan in June 2013. Our Watch is jointly funded by all states and territories.
Our Watch has developed key strategic frameworks for primary prevention of violence against women and their children including:
- Change the Story: A shared framework for the primary prevention of violence against women and their children in Australia;
- Changing the Picture: A national resource to support the prevention of violence against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and their children; and
- Counting on Change: A guide for policy-makers, researchers, and other stakeholders on measuring population-level progress towards the prevention of violence against women and their children in Australia.
Our Watch also deliver a range of primary prevention projects to stop violence against women and their children before it starts.
