Final consultation summaries on a national point of referral now available

From October 2023 to January 2024, we ran consultations with government and non-government stakeholders to inform the design and delivery of a national point of referral under the National Strategy to Prevent and Respond to Child Sexual Abuse 2021-2030. The national point of referral will help victims and survivors of child sexual abuse, practitioners and the general public to navigate the service system and access information and resources.

We engaged First Nations Collective Consulting, who partnered with Impact Co., to undertake dedicated trauma-informed, culturally safe, accessible and inclusive consultations with people with lived experience, First Nations people, people from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds, and people with disability as part of this broader public consultation process. We also captured feedback through an online survey on the Attorney-General’s Department’s Consultation hub.

Stakeholders who participated in these consultations were invited to provide feedback on the draft summaries, which has been incorporated in the final documents.

Thank you to everyone who took part and provided their time and expertise.
