Issues Paper To Assist Royal Commission Submissions

02 April 2015

Minister for the Prevention of Family Violence, Fiona Richardson, has welcomed the release of an issues paper from the Royal Commission into Family Violence, which will assist individuals and organisations to lodge written submissions.

Submissions are open for victims of family violence or individuals and organisations who have come into contact with people that have been affected. Submissions can be made anonymously and confidentially, or publicly.

The Commission, headed by the Hon. Marcia Neave, will report back to the Government in February 2016.

Public hearings are expected to be held mid-year and will include local stakeholders, experts and organisations.

Submissions close on May 29.
