About

The National Women’s Safety Alliance brings together a diversity of voices, expertise and experience to inform and guide national policy on women’s safety. The NWSA, established in August 2021, connects the sector, experts, government, and victim-survivors with a shared vision to end violence against women. This will be achieved through consultation, research, and the collaborative development of expert policy advice to government.
