Tasmania's action plan for family and sexual violence 2019-2022

Safe Homes, Families, Communities: Tasmania’s action plan for family and sexual violence 2019‑2022 (Safe Homes, Families, Communities) is the Tasmanian Government’s,
coordinated, whole-of-government action plan to respond to family and sexual violence.

Safe Homes, Families, Communities represents the next stage of the Government’s long-term commitment to preventing and responding to family violence, and the new response to sexual violence.

Safe Homes, Families, Communities invests $26 million over three years for 40 actions to prevent and respond to family and sexual violence in Tasmania under three priority areas:

  1. Primary prevention and early intervention
  2. Response and recovery
  3. Strengthening the service system

Priorities for new actions were identified through the comprehensive, cross-agency, Family Violence Service System Review undertaken in 2018-19, which included stakeholder and community consultation.

Actions to address sexual violence were informed by comprehensive research; examination of the existing service system in Tasmania; analysis of best-practice systems operating in other jurisdictions; and targeted consultation with key stakeholders.
