The Domestic Violence Prevention Council (DVPC) was established in 1997 as an independent statutory body under the Domestic Violence Agencies Act 1986. The Council’s authority and accountabilities are shaped by legislation and the Council Standing Orders. The Council is the peak body to offer advice to the ACT Attorney-General on issues relevant to its responsibilities on domestic violence.
Domestic and Family violence (including sexual violence) is happening in our ACT community and it has significant impacts. WHAT CAN YOU DO?
