Policy and Law Reform

NAAFLS plays an active role in seeking to bring about positive changes to substantive and procedural law around family violence. We make regular submissions to the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet and the Northern Territory Government on alternate approaches to tackling family violence in communities. Our solicitors and field officers liaise with stakeholders and residents of communities to identify means of improving the effectiveness of the justice system in dealing with family violence. We are committed to working towards holistic and culturally appropriate legal responses to family violence.
