Families Australia has a long history of providing policy advice to Australian Governments and Parliaments about family and domestic violence, particularly as it affects children and young people. We strongly support efforts to end family and domestic violence in Australia and internationally. We are also a strong supporter of the White Ribbon Day campaign. Families Australia’s CEO Brian Babington is a White Ribbon Day Ambassador.
Families Australia supports the National Plan of Action to Reduce Violence Against Women and their Children. Our particular contribution to the issue of family and domestic violence is our leadership role in relation to the National Framework for Protecting Australia’s Children 2009-2020 and coordination of the National Coalition of Organisations Committed to the Safety and Wellbeing of Australia’s Children which brings the views of NGOs and researchers to the attention of the Australian Government.
