The ACT Government has asked the Domestic Violence Prevention Council to prepare a Whole of Government Statement on Family Violence . The aim of the Statement is to articulate a clear and concise message about the Government’s position that everyone has a right to live their lives free from family violence in all its forms. The Statement, together with the ACT Prevention of Violence Against Women and their Children Strategy which is currently under development, will provide overarching guidance to shape all future policies, and to assist with the updating of current policies.
The One in Three Campaign has lodged a submission to the Whole of ACT Government Statement on Family Violence that strongly agrees with the overall message conveyed by the draft statement , but provides some suggestions that add to the statement’s accuracy and inclusivity.
