Keeping women and children safe

Keeping women and children safe has been our priority from the very beginning.

It’s the reason we established the Royal Commission into Family Violence. It’s why we’ve implemented every one of its 227 recommendations. And it’s why we’ve invested more than $3.7 billion over the past eight years to keep women and children safe.

But there’s more to do – and we’ll keep doing what matters.

This year’s Budget will invest a further $117 million to continue to support victim survivors of family violence and hold perpetrators to account, including in Aboriginal‑led services, by delivering perpetrator intervention programs, keeping victim survivors safe in their homes, increasing sexual assault support services and providing specialist family violence legal assistance at court.
