Domestic and Family Violence

Domestic and Family Violence – Roundtables

Last month the Premier and Shannon Fentiman MP announced the Government’s commitment to leading a program of reform to realise the vision of the Not Now, Not Ever: Putting an End to Domestic and Family Violence in Queensland Report.

Also released was a long-term Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Strategy and an announcement of their intention to develop a separate but complementary plan specifically dedicated to the prevention of violence against women.

Over the next three months they will collaborate extensively across Queensland with Queenslanders on specific components of the Strategy. This will be achieved through on-line feedback, a series of forums throughout the State and one-on-one meetings with technical sector experts.

Getting involved

You can be involved by going online at and having your say.

You can provide feedback until 16 November 2015.

You can also view the Queensland Government’s Response to the Taskforce’s 140 recommendations which underpin the draft Strategy. The 121 recommendations directed at government have been accepted and the remaining 19 non-government recommendations are supported. They need the input and insights of all Queenslanders if they are to genuinely collaborate and create a roadmap for positive change in our society.
