The Principles that guide us

  1. Domestic, family and sexual violence is one of the most prevalent, pervasive and serious human rights violations.
  2. Everyone has the right to be respected and live without fear from violence.
  3. The use of violence is a choice and people need to be held responsible and accountable for their behaviour.
  4. We operate from an intersectional feminist framework, acknowledging that domestic and family violence is gender-based violence, predominantly perpetrated by men against women.
  5. It is critical that we continue to learn from and include diverse voices of survivors and culturally diverse communities when seeking to prevent violence.
  6. We provide inclusive services that are evidence-based and trauma informed.
  7. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People know best what their communities need and want.
  8. We acknowledge and respect the abilities, strengths, goals and needs of people living with disability.
  9. We are committed to working collaboratively as part of a broader system.
  10. Our governance will be robust, ethical and transparent.
