Living free from violence is everyone’s right. Taking action to prevent it is everyone’s responsibility.

On 14 March 2017, the Premier, the Hon Will Hodgman MP, launched Safe Homes, Safe Families: Responding and Reporting (Responding and Reporting).

Responding and Reporting, outlines key achievements of the first 18 months of implementation of Safe Homes, Safe Families; Tasmania’s Family Violence Action Plan 2015-2020.

It also outlines future milestones for the implementation of actions from 1 January 2017 until 30 June 2018.

In line with the Government’s commitment to listen, learn and take a flexible approach, Responding and Reporting includes three new actions:

  • Provide practical supports to enable victims of family violence to stay safely in their own homes;
  • Develop a practice guide to support service providers working with clients impacted by family violence; and
  • Work with the Tasmanian Aboriginal community to support Aboriginal families experiencing family violence.
