Let’s Make a Safe State

Acting to End Sexual, Domestic and Family Violence

The NSW Women’s Alliance, a group of NSW peak organisations and state-wide service providers working within the sexual and domestic and family violence field and from a feminist framework, including Women’s Legal Service NSW, have together developed forty-nine recommendations for policy and law change to prevent and end sexual, domestic and family violence in NSW, called A Safe State.

In the lead up to the 2019 NSW Election we are calling on all members of parliament and members of the community to take a stand against sexual and domestic and family violence which is disproportionately perpetrated by men against women and children and to support the A Safe State recommendations.

A Safer State makes recommendations in six key areas:

  1. Create cultural change to prevent violence and promote gender equality
  2. Provide immediate and ongoing support for people experiencing violence
  3. Ensure people experiencing violence have a safe home
  4. Ensure people experiencing violence can access justice safely
  5. Enable Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples to lead change to end violence
  6. Be accountable to specialist workers and the wider community
