Our progress

We have delivered all the recommendations for government in the landmark Not now, not ever report of the Special Taskforce on Domestic and Family Violence in Queensland.

The Delivery of recommendations—Not now, not ever: Putting an end to domestic and family violence in Queensland report (PDF) provides a snapshot of activities undertaken by government and non-government organisations to implement each of the 140 recommendations as at 30 September 2019.

The Year 6 highlights card (PDF) (or DOCX) provides an overview of what has been achieved to date in Queensland, with community, business and government working together to create real and lasting change.

However, we know significant reform takes time and there is still more to do.

Our ongoing actions are underpinned and guided by our Domestic and family violence prevention strategy 2016–2026 and supporting action plans.

The Third action plan of Queensland’s Domestic and family violence prevention strategy (2019–20 to 2021–22) (PDF) builds on our significant work to date and provides a blueprint for government and the community to work together over the next 3 years to continue to prevent and respond to domestic and family violence (DFV).

To achieve our vision of a Queensland free from DFV we are continuing to drive change around the following 3 foundational elements.
