The Tasmanian Government’s nation-leading Family Violence Action Plan has been recognised at the Prime Minister’s Awards for Excellence in the Public Service.
The Family Violence Cross Agency Working Group, which has overseen the implementation of these important reforms, was awarded the Prime Minister’s Collaboration Award and a commendation for Sustainable Excellence in Public Sector Management.
The Working Group includes representatives from the Departments of Premier and Cabinet, Education, Health and Human Services, Police, Fire and Emergency Services, and Justice.
I extend my congratulations and thanks to the dedicated State servants who have been critical in implementing the Tasmanian Government’s strong response to eradicating family violence.
This is a shining example of Tasmania’s public service delivering the highest standard services to support those who are vulnerable in our community.
