Safe Homes, Safe Families: Tasmania's Family Violence Action Plan

Safe Homes Safe Families - Action Plan coverSafe Homes, Safe Families: Tasmania’s Family Violence Action Plan 2015-2020 (Safe Homes, Safe Families) is the Tasmanian Government’s, coordinated, whole-of-government action plan to respond to family violence.

Safe Homes, Safe Families focuses on three priority areas for action:

  • changing the attitudes and behaviours that lead to family violence;
  • supporting families affected by violence; and
  • strengthening legal responses to family violence to hold perpetrators to account for their violent behaviours.

Safe Homes, Safe Families allocates an additional $26 million to new and direct actions to build our response to family violence.

On 14 March 2017, the Premier 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. 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:

  • Action 20 - Provide practical supports to enable victims of family violence to stay safely in their own homes;
  • Action 21 - Develop a practice guide to support service providers working with clients impacted by family violence; and
  • Action 22 - Work with the Tasmanian Aboriginal community to support Aboriginal families experiencing family violence.

The 2017-18 State Budget announced a new Safe Homes, Safe Families action:

  • Action 23 - trial of electronic monitoring of high risk family violence offenders.
