The Royal Commission into Family Violence delivered its report to Government House at 10.00am this morning.
The report is the culmination of a 13-month inquiry into how to effectively:
- prevent family violence
- improve early intervention
- support victims
- make perpetrators accountable
- better coordinate community and government responses
- evaluate and measure strategies, frameworks, policies, programs and services.
Commissioner Marcia Neave AO and Deputy Commissioners Patricia Faulkner AO and Tony Nicholson expressed their gratitude to everyone who contributed to the Commission’s work.
‘We are very grateful to everyone who attended our community consultations, who made submissions to the Commission, appeared at our public hearings, and attended our roundtable discussions.’
‘Many of those who contributed to our work have been directly or indirectly affected by family violence and we thank them for their courage and insight’, said Commissioner Neave.
