This was a groundbreaking plan for Australia in many respects. It was the first time that all of the States and Territories around Australia joined with the Commonwealth Government to say: we need to take action to prevent the largely-invisible crime of violence against women and children in this country.

It is also the first time that we have invested so heavily in prevention of violence to ensure that harm does not happen in the first place.”
