On 16 November 2022, NSW passed a Bill making coercive control a criminal offence in domestic (intimate partner) relationships. People found guilty under the new law will face up to seven years in jail. The offence applies to current or former partner relationships.

You can write to your local State or Federal Member of Parliament detailing your cult experience and ask them to seek a change in legislation to make coercive control in cultic groups a criminal offence.


Below are the contact details for the Australian Attorney General and State Attorneys General whose departments are responsible for introducing Bills into Parliament to instigate changes to the law. 

  • Include your email address or postal address (PO Box or street address)

  • Outline your experience and what you are hoping to achieve

  • Provide names, dates, locations and legal case numbers if relevant

  • Ask them to respond to you

  • If you feel comfortable, ask to meet with them to chat in person.
