About us

Our Watch is a national leader in the primary prevention of violence against women and their children in Australia. We work to embed gender equality and prevent violence where Australians live, learn, work and socialise.

Governance and establishment

Our Watch is an independent not-for-profit organisation established in 2013 by the Victorian and Commonwealth Governments. Since then, all State and Territories Governments have joined as members.

Our Watch is an initiative under the National Plan to Reduce Violence against Women and their Children 2010-2022 (the National Plan) and complements the work of Australia’s National Research Organisation for Women’s Safety (ANROWS).
