National Civil Society and Business Sector Roundtables Scribe’s Report

To develop the Second Action Plan, national roundtables were held in February 2014 that were attended by around 100 experts and organisations. An independent scribe’s report was developed following the roundtables to summarise the key themes areas of discussion.

This scribe’s report was developed in April 2014.  This was prior to name changes of two key National Plan organisations. The National Centre of Excellence to Reduce Violence against Women and their Children was renamed in May 2014 as Australia’s National Research Organisation for Women’s Safety (ANROWS) and the Foundation to Prevent Violence against Women and their Children (the Foundation) was renamed in September 2014 as Our WATCh.  In this report, both organisations are referred to by their previous names.
