Committed to Safety

Committed to Safety: A framework for addressing domestic, family and sexual violence in South Australia (CTS) is a policy framework which 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 & Evidence Base
  • Evaluation & Monitoring our Impact

Importantly, CTS is an action-driven document. CTS actions cover all three pillars, and many focus on specific population groups (children/youth, 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, though the 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.

CTS is available as a PDF download. Click here to access the Committed to Safety framework (PDF 1.1 MB)
