The Commonwealth Department of Social Services has developed a family safety pack with information on Australia’s laws regarding domestic and family violence, sexual assault and forced marriage. The pack aims to reduce violence against women from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds, by ensuring they understand their rights and where to get support if needed. It also aims to strengthen support for women coming to Australia on a Partner Visa, by providing information on the family violence visa provisions and available support. The pack includes factsheets that have been translated into 22 languages as well as a low literacy story board.
