AGD's National Principles to Address Coercive Control

January 2024

The Attorney-General Department (AGD) coordinated a national approach to address coercive control. It identified 7 National Principles to recognise and respond to the issue.

 

We produced an Easy Read version of the Consultation Draft of the National Principles to Address Coercive Control. You can read this on the AGD website. The AGD heard from more than 400 stakeholders during the consultation process. The feedback informed the development of the National Principles to Address Coercive Control (the National Principles). 

 

We produced an Easy Read version of the National Principles. We used trauma-sensitive language to convey the sensitive and potentially triggering themes of the guide, aided by consultation with, and feedback from, focus group participants.

 

We received feedback from a diverse group of participants, of different genders, ages and backgrounds, all with intellectual disability. We worked collaboratively with the AGD to ensure the focus group participants' feedback was aptly executed and reflected in the final Easy Read version.

 

You can read the Easy Read version of the National Principles to Address Coercive Control on the AGD website.
