Family Safety Victoria (FSV) have provided an update to ensure that victim survivors have consistent and equitable access to specialist family violence support options across the state. The update provides confirmation of the minimum requirements for all Local Family Violence Support Services in all DFFH Areas related to the treatment of referrals for specialist family violence support. Local Family Violence Support Services receive funding for victim survivor case management under Activity 38028 Client Support Family Violence. This funding supports the delivery of key case management functions across the spectrum of responses and domains set out in the Case Management Program Requirements. This includes intake and access related screening, identification and triage functions.

Alongside ANROWS‘s Sexual Harassment Research Program, Dr Nicola Helps from Monash Gender and Family Violence Prevention Centre is also conducting research into workplace sexual harassment. The survey asks participants to describe an incident of workplace sexual harassment they have experienced.

The project seeks to better understand victim/survivors’ experiences of workplace sexual harassment, and their views on how workplaces can better prevent workplace sexual harassment. The project also seeks to explore the experiences of bystanders to workplace sexual harassment.

Monash University with Harmony Alliance are surveying migrant and refugee women’s experiences and views around behaviour they experience in work settings. The survey is being conducted under the auspices of Monash University Human Research Ethics Committee (MUHREC) Project 32812.

The Victorian Government recognises that ongoing challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic and ongoing workforce shortages mean that not all practitioners will be able to be hired in precise accordance with the Mandatory Minimum Qualifications policy at this early stage of implementation. The transition period, running until 30 June 2026, is an opportunity to adjust to the new settings. We will continue to work with peak bodies, employers, unions and the tertiary education sector to monitor the impacts on the sector through the Transition Monitoring Advisory Group and to inform a review the Policy in 2024-25.

The campaign includes videos, posters and fact sheets and videos that are available to download. There are also street posters on display across Melbourne’s western and northern suburbs. Check out the campaign and resources here.
