“NACC has joined other like-minded organisations to promote the Community, Respect and Equality (CRE) Agreement to assist in spreading the message that violence in any form is never okay. NACC’s values – passion, collaboration, professionalism, leadership, respect, accountability, excellence and impartiality closely align with the CRE Agreed values & Codes of behaviour.” ~NACC, 2019

We believe it is vitally important to protect vulnerable children and adults, especially where there is or has been family violence. By way of our endorsement of the Community Respect Equality Agreement, we look forward to working with community towards ensuring safety for all.” ~Centacare, 2019
“Fast Facts: Impacts of family domestic family violence” is a new resource by ANROWS, found here: https://www.anrows.org.au/resource/fast-facts-impacts-of-family-domestic-family-violence/
This second edition of the fact sheet draws on new data published in June this year by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) in Family, domestic and sexual violence in Australia: continuing the national story 2019. The fact sheet provides an analysis of risks, prevalence, support services, and the impacts of family, domestic and sexual violence. This may be useful for organisations and businesses to include in their induction or education packages for staff.
