The Office for Women works toward achieving gender equity and positive change for women in South Australia by collaborating across government and the community. Young people are disproportionately affected by domestic, family and sexual violence and Committed to Safety: A framework for addressing domestic, family and sexual violence in South Australia recognises that young people may experience or engage in these types of violence and are not just passive witnesses to adult behaviour. The priorities of the former Youth Safety Strategy are reflected in the framework.
Resources related to young people’s experiences of domestic, family and sexual violence are available here and on the Office for Women’s site.
