By taking a strong, practical approach based on a fundamental premise that violence against women and children is unacceptable, our Action Plan provides a coordinated plan that will have a strong collective impact. Our plan recognises that violence against women and children is a complex social and economic problem that affects all Victorians. A complex issue needs a multi-faceted approach based on practical action across many areas of government and across the community as a whole. This plan contains a set of mutually reinforcing initiatives across the spectrum of prevention, early
intervention and response.
