Domestic and Family Violence and Sexual Assault Council

The Domestic and Family Violence and Sexual Assault Council (Council) is an alliance between government and non-government representatives working to address domestic and family violence and sexual assault in NSW. It strives to be an integrated response to domestic and family violence and sexual assault in NSW, and provides advice to the NSW Government.

The Council brings together representatives from the NSW government, non-government organisations and academia. It facilitates shared understandings of the NSW Government’s reforms in domestic and family violence and sexual assault, and monitors and advises on reform implementation.

The Council also provides advice on legislation, and policy and programs, relating to domestic and family violence and sexual assault and is chaired by the Minister for the Prevention of Domestic Violence.
