Family and Domestic Violence Consultation

State Government commences consultation to reduce family and domestic violence 

The Department of Communities has commenced State-wide consultation to inform development of a strategy to reduce family and domestic violence in the Western Australian community over the next 10 years. 

According to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare: Family, domestic and sexual violence is the leading cause of homelessness and housing instability in Australia, and is consistently one of the most common reasons clients seek assistance from specialist homelessness services (SHS).

There is a range of ways people can get involved and have their say including: 

  • an on-line survey;
  • written responses to a consultation paper;
  • a short ‘Message to the Hon Simone McGurk, MLA Minister for Prevention of Family and Domestic Violence’; or
  • face to face forums and workshops (dates and locations to be announced in early 2019).

Tailored face to face engagement, and other on-line formats, will also be used to support access and engagement for people with disability, or from diverse cultural backgrounds or geographic locations.
