Policies and plans

The NSW Government has a range of policies and programs designed to respond to domestic and family violence in NSW. The Commonwealth Government also has an overarching DFV policy framework that applies nationally. The main NSW Government departments responsible for responses to DFV are the Department of Communities and Justice (DCJ) and NSW Health. DCJ funds specialist DFV services throughout NSW, which support DFV victim-survivors to find safety and rebuild their lives, through funding a range of programs delivered through these services. NSW Health oversees and funds the responses to DFV delivered through the health system.
