The Commonwealth Government is leading the development of the Fourth Action Plan 2019-2022 of the National Plan to Reduce Violence against Women and their Children 2010-2022 (the National Plan) in partnership with state and territory governments.
The Fourth Action Plan is the final action plan of the National Plan and is due for implementation from 2019.
National consultations with stakeholders to inform the development of the Fourth Action Plan began in mid-July and will continue until October 2018.
Information captured from the Fourth Action Plan consultations will also support discussions on reducing violence against women at the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) National Summit in Adelaide in October 2018.
The Department of Social Services has developed responses to frequently asked questions (FAQs) regarding the development of the Fourth Action Plan, including questions sent to the FourthActionPlan@dss.gov.au mailbox and those raised at the Fourth Action Plan consultation workshops. The FAQs will be updated and published on the website throughout the consultation period.
