COMMUNITY ENCOURAGED TO HAVE THEIR SAY ON SEXUAL ASSAULT PREVENTION

Monday, 17 July 2017

The NSW Government is asking the public for their feedback on improving the efforts to prevent and respond to sexual assault and sexual violence in NSW.

Member for Lane Cove, Anthony Roberts, said, “feedback will be used in the development of the NSW Sexual Assault Strategy.”

“The NSW Government’s Sexual Assault Strategy will focus on prevention, education, and support for survivors of sexual assault, and improving accountability for perpetrators,” he said.

“I would especially urge victim-survivors to share their views with us.”

Mr Roberts said information gathered from participant responses would be incorporated into the development of the Strategy, released in November 2017.

A series of consultation workshops have also taken place across NSW with various stakeholder groups.
