National Plan Consultation Reports
Broad consultation has been undertaken to inform the development of the draft National Plan to End Violence against Women and Children 2022-2032 (National Plan).
Consultation activities have engaged over 3,000 individuals through varied mediums, including:
- the House of Representatives Standing Committee on Social Policy and Legal Affairs Inquiry into family, domestic and sexual violence
- online public consultation surveys through the DSS Engage platform
- the 2021 National Summit on Women’s Safety
Targeted consultation was also facilitated by the Monash Gender and Family Violence Prevention Centre, Monash University, including:
- thematic and jurisdictional workshops
- one-on-one and small group interviews with key stakeholders and other subject matter experts
- and a dedicated consultation with victim-survivor advocates
The Department of Social Services has published two Stakeholder Consultation Reports developed by Monash University:
- National Plan Stakeholder Consultation Report
- National Plan Victim-Survivor Advocates Consultation Report
Both reports have informed the development of the National Plan to date and have provided insights and observations from a broad range of stakeholders on desired outcomes under the next National Plan.
