ACT Government responds to DVPC recommendations to improve supports for children and young people experiencing domestic and family violence

On 6 June the ACT Government released a response to the Domestic Violence Prevention Council report from the Extraordinary Meeting in 2018 about children and young people.

The report recommended action in five priority areas to further the ACT Governments capacity to understand and respond effectively to the needs of children and young people impacted by this violence. The government has accepted all of the recommendations and has provided practical steps for how these recommendations can be actioned.
