The aim of this research is to improve the quality of South Australia’s response to family and domestic violence by identifying practical reform options to increase access to and enforcement of Intervention Orders in South Australia. This aim aligns with the strong demand within the South Australian community to see the Intervention Orders regime improved.

Central to this research is the ability to engage with and learn from those with lived experience accessing, drafting, implementing and enforcing Intervention Orders and responding to the breaches. It is through this lived experience voice that the specific problems and challenges facing the current system can be identified and sustainable options for future improvement become clear.
