These are matters that I know all colleagues care deeply about. I've already touched on the issue of children and the needs that they have. We are also working with the states and territories, non-government organisations and the community to reduce family violence through the implementation of the National Plan to Reduce Violence Against Women and Children.

In September 2015, the government announced the $100 million Women's Safety Package to ensure we have measures to support women and their children experiencing or at risk of domestic, family and sexual violence. We also have the Third Action Plan of the national plan, launched on 28 October 2016, which is part of this government's long-term commitment to reduce domestic, family and sexual violence. The Third Action Plan is underpinned by a $100 million funding envelope over three years. (Time expired)
