Review of the Domestic Violence Justice Strategy

The Department of Justice is seeking feedback from people who have been the victim or perpetrator of a domestic or family violence incident in the last two years. Your feedback will inform our review of the Domestic Violence Justice Strategy and will help us to improve the NSW justice system’s response to domestic and family violence in the coming years. 

What’s this about? 

The NSW Domestic Violence Justice Strategy committed all justice agencies and victims support services to work together to provide an effective and integrated response to domestic violence. The Strategy set out to make victims safer, hold perpetrators accountable and prevent domestic violence from reoccurring.

The Department is now reviewing the Strategy to assess how we can better meet the needs of victims and improve the NSW justice system's response to domestic and family violence. 

Have your say

If you have been the victim or perpetrator of a domestic or family violence incident in the last two years, the Department would like to hear from you about your experience with the justice system. You can have your say online by 28 October 2018. 

You do not need to give your name or personal details to participate in this survey and your responses will be kept strictly confidential. 

Your feedback will help the NSW Government to develop better NSW justice system responses to domestic and family violence.
