We are committed to taking action to end domestic and family violence.

The Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Strategy 2016-2026 and supporting action plans provide the framework for taking strong, positive and coordinated action to better support people affected by domestic and family violence and collaborate with the community to ensure sustainable changes are made.

Find out more about the progress we’re making to deliver on the recommendations in the Not Now, Not Ever report, as we work towards achieving our vision of a Queensland free from domestic and family violence.
