Background

The Community Council Against Violence was established in 1989 to provide advice to Government about violence in the community. The Council was reconstituted and relaunched in 1993 with agreement from Cabinet. The Council currently includes three task forces: the Victims' Task Force; the Violence Against Women Task Force and the Community Safety Task Force.

Functions of the Community Council Against Violence include:
informing the Government about community concerns relating to violence
producing and disseminating accurate information about violence in the community
developing and supporting strategies which will foster a reduction in community violence.

Responsibility for the Community Council Against Violence was transferred to the Premier (VRG 50) from the Minister for Police and Emergency Services (VRG 73) as part of the 1991 machinery of government changes and subsequently transferred in 1992 to the joint responsibility of the Attorney-General and the Minister for Police and Emergency Services and Corrections (VRG 19).

At agency level the Department of Premier and Cabinet assumed responsibility in 1991 for the Community Council Against Violence from the Ministry for Police and Emergency Services (VA 421). In 1992 responsibility for the Council was transferred to the Department of Justice (VA 3085).
