Document published on 28 March 2017

The Essential Services Commission is currently amending the Water Customer Service Code to require water businesses to have a family violence policy.

VCOSS supports this initiative, and is urging the ESC to extend itto other utility providers. This submission also discusses:

  • Taking consistent business approaches
  • More support for water services staff
  • Designing mechanisms to protect family violence survivors and promote safety
  • Forging formal linkages
