Committed to Safety
A framework for addressing domestic, family and sexual violence in South Australia
Committed to Safety: A framework for addressing domestic, family and sexual violence in South Australia (CTS) is a policy framework that provides a clear and considered plan for action in relation to preventing domestic, family and sexual violence.
CTS features three pillars of response:
- Primary Prevention
- Service and Support
- Justice (Legislative, Statutory and Community).
It is underpinned by two ‘enablers’:
- Data and Evidence Base
- Evaluation and Monitoring our Impact.
Importantly, Committed to Safety is an action-driven document. Its actions cover all three pillars, and many focus on specific population groups:
- Aboriginal people
- women with disability
- culturally and linguistically diverse people
- older women, and
- regional and remote people.
The actions are broken down into short, medium and long-term. Population-specific actions have not been allocated time frames as many of these will require significant engagement with, and the involvement of, non-government organisations.
