It Stops Here: Standing Together To End Domestic and Family Violence in Mulgoa

Tuesday July 9, 2013

Member for Mulgoa, Tanya Davies MP, today encouraged all members of her community to get online and provide feedback to the NSW Government’s reforms to improve the response to domestic and family violence in NSW.

“The It Stops Here: Standing together to end domestic and family violence reforms recommend a range of initiatives that will better support victims of domestic and family violence in our community who face a serious threat to their safety,” Tanya Davies said.

The public has the chance to read and comment on the reforms via the NSW Government’s ‘Have Your Say’ website: www.haveyoursay.nsw.gov.au

“Any member of the public can share their views, but I especially urge people in Mulgoa who work in jobs that support or respond to domestic and family violence victims, to do so,” said Tanya Davies.

The reforms recommend on-the-ground initiatives to support a consistent response to people experiencing domestic and family violence, across NSW. This includes:

  • Minimum practice standards.
  • A common risk identification tool.
  • A central referral point to guide people between services.
  • Safety action meetings where information about high-risk cases is shared so service providers can respond more collaboratively. 

The reforms were developed through consultation with more than 300 domestic and family violence experts from more than 50 non-government and Government agencies.

Members of the community and experts will have the chance to comment on the proposed reforms at www.haveyoursay.nsw.gov.au until 23 July.
