Family Safety Hub

New ideas | Positive actions | Lasting change

The Family Safety Hub is a completely new approach to improving domestic and family violence services in the ACT.

It is bringing the right people together to work out how we can do things better and earlier. This is a different way of involving the community to generate fresh ideas that we can turn into actions to create lasting change.

The Hub is not a service—it’s a network for collaboration and innovation. The change we are seeking requires everyone to play a part including government, the community sector, the private sector and the whole community.

Find out more about how the Family Safety Hub works.
