Adelaide will host a two-day National Summit on Reducing Violence Against Women and Their Children on 2 – 3 October.

The key outcome from the summit will be the Fourth Action Plan, “Turning the Corner”, which is the final Action Plan under the National Plan to Reduce Violence Against Women and Their Children 2010-2022.

Featuring panel sessions and interactive debates, the summit will be the final sounding point and an opportunity to consider feedback received throughout the comprehensive national consultation process for the development of the Fourth Action Plan.

The plan will continue to provide a coordinated approach to reducing violence against women and their children through collaboration with all Australian jurisdictions. It will outline evidence-based priorities, focussing on prevention, responding to workforce capability concerns and improving access to justice.

Around 80 delegates from communities and key stakeholder groups will join in discussions focusing on the ultimate goal of Australian women and their children living free from violence in safe communities.
