The National Plan to Reduce Violence against Women and their Children 2010 – 2022 (the National Plan)

The National Plan brings together the efforts of governments across the nation to make a real and sustained reduction in the levels of violence against women. This plan shows Australia’s commitment to upholding the human rights of Australian women and it is the first plan to coordinate action across jurisdictions. 

The Foundation to Prevent Violence Against Women and their Children (Foundation)

The Foundation is working to raise awareness and engage the community in action to prevent violence against women and their children.

ANROWS and the Foundation are currently collaborating on a number of initiatives.

Australian Centre for the Study of Sexual Assault (ACSSA)

ACSSA was established in 2003 by the Commonwealth Office for Women. It is funded by the Department of Social Services and is hosted by the Australian Institute of Family Studies. Their key role has been to facilitate access to the growing evidence-base on sexual assault and to support organisations, agencies and others use research and evidence in shaping policy, practice and research directions in responding to, and reducing, sexual assault.

From January to June 2014, ANROWS has engaged the Australian Institute of Family Studies (AIFS) to continue providing core ACSSA services, such as research updates, research enquiries, website updates, and electronic alerts to stakeholders.

The Australian Domestic & Family Violence Clearinghouse (Clearinghouse)

The Clearinghouse has provided an extensive database of domestic and family violence literature to support research, DV service delivery and policy development.

From January to June 2014, ANROWS has engaged the Clearinghouse to continue providing core services, such as providing access to resources, synthesising research, producing a small number of publications and responding to brief research-related enquiries.
