Safe Homes, Safe Families - Tasmania's Family Violence Action Plan 2015-2020

Safe Homes Safe Families - Action Plan cover

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

Safe Home, Safe Families is the Tasmanian Government’s new, coordinated, whole-of-government action plan to respond to family violence.

To build our response to family violence, an additional $25.57 million has been committed to new and direct actions over the next four years. This includes:

  • $8 million to establish Safe Families Tasmania
  • $685,000 to change attitudes and behaviours that lead to family violence
  • $12 million to support families and children
  • $4.75 million to strengthen legal responses.

The Safe Homes, Safe Families Implementation Plan: 13 August 2015 - 31 December 2015 outlines the short-term milestones for each action planned for the period 13 August 2015 to 31 December 2016. 

 This first Implementation Plan will ensure actions are implemented in a coordinated and timely manner, progress is tracked and areas for potential improvement are identified. Further Implementation Plans will be released over the next five years.
