NSW New Laws to protect Victims of Domestic Violence Fact Sheets
The NSW Government is introducing new laws to protect and support victims of domestic violence (DV) better. The changes will strengthen NSW’s Apprehended Domestic Violence Order (ADVO) regime and make it easier to recognise and punish offenders who strangle their intimate partners.
These changes complement the NSW Government’s investment of more than $390 million over four years in DV initiatives to provide greater protection for women, children and men in NSW.

Insights from NCOSS regional community consultations 2018
Between May and August 2018, the NCOSS team visited 9 NSW districts, Within these 9 districts, NCOSS ran 15 consultation sessions with social and community service organisations. Consultation sessions were recorded by note-takers, and the resulting data analysed thematically. The 17 themes we have identified are grounded in the experiences of the communities to which they apply. They are both unique between communities, and common across NSW. This report is a reflection on the discussions held in each region.   NCOSS report Download Flyer
