WomanACT_NAP What we heard report

The lack of trust in and fear of the justice system results in survivors not reporting or wanting to engage in the justice system. [...] Employers and workplaces lack the knowledge and policies to identify and support employees who are experiencing gender-based violence. [...] ONGOING ENGAGEMENT Give survivors decision-making and leadership roles in the development and implementation of the National Action Plan to End Gender-Based Violence. [...] A lack of affordable housing in the community is a key barrier for survivors establishing safety and independence and leads to bottlenecks in shelters for survivors. [...] Create multi-sector tables to identify and respond to cases in the community of high-risk domestic violence, with the aim of providing wrap around supports and interventions, and reducing the risk of harm and femicide.
