Analysis: Final Report of Inquiry into family, domestic and sexual violence: a snapshot of where LHA recommendations have been adopted and where there is still work to be done.
In June 2020, the House Standing Committee on Social Policy and Legal Affairs adopted an inquiry into family, domestic and sexual violence. The inquiry was referred by the Minister for Women, Senator the Hon Marise Payne, and the Minister for Families and Social Services, Senator the Hon Anne Ruston. The Committee published its final report in April 2021 after receiving submissions from many organisations and holding public hearings.
LHA made a submission for the House of Representatives Standing Committee on Social Policy and Legal Affairs’ inquiry into family, domestic and sexual violence in July 2020 and provided recommendations. Further to this, representatives from the LHA gave evidence at a public hearing in Sydney in November 2020.
