WHAT DO THE OTHERS THINK?
“The plan Freedom From Fear: working towards the elimination of family and domestic violence in WA, outlines 20 important actions to be undertaken but doesn’t provide specific details on how success will be measured and monitored, or which agencies will be responsible for each action,” she said.
“This Action Plan is addressing a critically important issue in our state, and the public needs to be able to clearly see that the Government is achieving outcomes.
“Without clear signposts or check points evaluating progress of the action plan, how can we be sure that we are on track to reduced and eliminating domestic violence in the State?”
“After seven years, it’s good to see the Government has finally woken up to the issue of family and domestic violence. But it’s not enough to just talk about the problem,” she said.
“Without putting the right amount of money into what we know works, the Government's strategy will just be words on paper.”
