To overcome domestic, family and sexual violence in Australia and New Zealand requires the engagement of a range of stakeholders including but not limited to government; industry; police and law-enforcement; family violence agencies; legal services and the judiciary.  
Domestic, Family and Sexual Violence ANZ, is the leading annual forum and will bring together key stakeholders from across New Zealand and Australia to share practical strategies and programs to create pathways to overcome domestic, family and sexual violence. 
The two-day program will cover recent government initiatives, technological innovations, protecting children from the trauma of domestic violence, first-hand accounts from domestic violence survivors, long-term behaviour change strategies with perpetrators of violence; helping victims navigate the legal system and strategies to stop sexual violence. 

The stats speak for themselves, so let’s work together to overcome domestic, family and sexual violence throughout Australia and New Zealand.
