February 2007

‘SHLV Bega has supported many women and children to stay in their own homes but we have also brought to the attention of the NSW Government our concerns that a statewide integrated domestic violence system, with strong leadership coming from the top as well as from the field, is necessary to ensure a broad, safe and consistent program of support to women and children staying in their homes.


This will require new specific domestic violence legislation, new Police Domestic Violence Standing Operating Procedures, and a whole-of-government management structure to drive effective integration. We have been impressed by the integration programs in the ACT, Tasmania and Victoria. We have urged the NSW Government to adopt a similar program.’
