NSW Sexual Violence Plan and NSW Domestic and Family Violence Plan

The NSW Sexual Violence Plan 2022-2027 (PDF, 1.6 MB) and the NSW Domestic and Family Violence Plan 2022-2027 (PDF, 1.7 MB) provides the NSW Government with strategic direction to prevent and respond to domestic, family and sexual violence from 2022–2027. 

Addressing domestic and family violence and sexual violence is a priority for the NSW Government. The Plans work towards a shared policy framework and vision that all people and communities in NSW are free from domestic, family and sexual violence. The Plans respond to and align with the National Plan to End Violence against Women and Children 2022-2032. They also build on the significant work and reforms already underway in NSW and replace the previous whole-of-government strategies to address DFV and SV, which ended in December 2021:

The Plans have been developed in consultation with key government agencies, advisory groups, peak organisations, sector representatives, Aboriginal organisations, front-line workers and victim-survivors to reflect the diverse expertise and experiences of these groups.

Addressing domestic, family and sexual violence requires commitment and action from all levels of society. These Plans enable everyone to take action and contribute to the social change required to prevent and respond to domestic, family and sexual violence.
