The National Plan to Reduce Violence against Women and their Children 2010-22

5 February 2014

Call for written submissions to inform the development of the Second Action Plan under the National Plan to Reduce Violence against Women and their Children 2010-22.

The National Plan to Reduce Violence against Women and their Children 2010-22 (the National Plan) is a 12-year strategy which aims to bring together Commonwealth, state and territory government efforts, as well as the important work being done by civil society, the business sector and the Australian community more broadly to make a sustained reduction in the levels of violence against women and their children. 

The National Plan is being delivered through four three-year Action Plans.  The First Action Plan (2010 – 2013) has been about laying a foundation for long-term change in achieving a significant and sustained reduction in violence against women and their children.  

The Second Action Plan (2013 – 2016) is an opportunity to take stock, reflect on gaps, develop new actions and strengthen implementation.  It will be about building and introducing practical national initiatives to reduce violence against women and their children. 

The Commonwealth Government wants to hear your ideas for action we can take at a national level to embed what has been achieved so far, fill gaps and strengthen implementation of the National Plan. 

We are inviting as many early ideas as possible, to be collated and considered alongside feedback received to date from other recent consultation processes.  

If you would like to make a written submission to inform the Second Action Plan, please email it through to npsecretariat@dss.gov.au by 14 March 2014.  Submissions will not be made publicly available.

More information about the National Plan and development of the Second Action Plan can be found at: The National Plan to reduce violence against women and their children.

Email your submission using the attached key questions for consideration to npsecretariat@dss.gov.au.  Please note this form will need to be saved separately and attached to your email.
