ANROWS supports governments at all levels to develop policy relating to violence against women and children, including policy across the community services, justice and health sectors.
ANROWS is funded by the Commonwealth and all state and territory governments of Australia, under the National Plan to Reduce Violence against Women and their Children 2010–2022 (the National Plan).
ANROWS offers a range of resources that translate the research evidence to support policymakers in delivering evidence-based policy.
Some key ANROWS resources for policymakers are highlighted below.
