NSW Domestic and Family Violence Prevention and Early Intervention Strategy 2017-2021The NSW Domestic and Family Violence Prevention and Early Intervention Strategy 2017-2021 (‘the Strategy’) sets out a direction for the way NSW Government agencies, non-government organisations and communities, design and implement prevention and early intervention strategies over the next four years.

The Strategy is a commitment under the NSW Domestic and Family Violence Blueprint for Reform 2016-2021: Safer Lives for Women, Men and Children (‘the Blueprint’), launched in August 2016, and delivers on the Blueprint focus areas of preventing domestic and family violence before it occurs, and intervening early to create safer lives for women, men and children.

The Strategy identifies priority areas to achieve change by shaping the environment to prevent violence from occurring in the first place; establishing a shared understanding and awareness of what constitutes domestic and family violence; responding to various experiences of violence; and strengthening the domestic and family violence system in NSW to support improved prevention and early intervention efforts.
