Prevention of family and domestic violence

The Department of Communities is working to our vision of a Western Australia where all people live free from family and domestic violence (FDV).

Family and domestic violence continues to be a significant and devastating issue in Western Australia. It takes many forms and occurs across all cultural groups, ages and sexual diversity groups.

The Department of Communities (Communities) is the lead agency coordinating strategy and policy direction in the prevention of family and domestic violence in Western Australia. Communities also plays a key role in the operational response to family and domestic violence in Western Australia.
