We have a responsibility to ensure all voices are heard

Domestic, family and sexual violence is a major health, welfare and social issue that has lifelong impacts. Centring the voices of lived experience is critical to realising the change we need.

Underpinning our entire approach will be ensuring that people with lived and living experience of domestic, family and sexual violence are supported and centred around policy development and implementation decisions — because the best people to help us make change and improve the system are those that have needed it most in the past.
