The Family Protection Act of 2014 has mandated the Minister for Women to establish a register of domestic violence counsellors at both the national and provincial level. A draft Domestic Violence Counselling Framework has been developed. The Framework provides clear guidance to the establishment of the register including registration and de-registration processes and a Code of Ethics and Practice Standards for registered domestic violence counsellors.
