Aligning the Personal with the Professional | Lived Experience Conference

October 18 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm


Join us for a conference on the 18th of October 2022 to understand how to incorporate lived experience into the Family Violence sector.

With a focus on the family violence sector in our region – from prevention through to response – this conference will centre the voice of lived and living experience of family violence and seek to:

  • Recognise that lived experience of family violence is already in our workforce.
  • Understand that the presence of lived experience of family violence brings richness to the sector’s work, and enables the sector to deliver the right services to communities
  • Focus on how lived experience and expertise of family violence can be recognised, integrated and supported to help our sector to retain and grow our workforce
  • Provide opportunities for the Family Violence sector in Southern Metropolitan Melbourne to discuss and consider the challenges to agencies to support lived experience respectfully

The conference organises are delighted that we will be joined by the Hon. Ros Spence, Minister for Prevention of Family Violence who will share some remarks with delegates.

The conference will be held at the Frankston Campus of Chisholm TAFE and, students and staff from Chisholm will provide a range of activities during the lunch break to assist us to build self-care skills, and, make sure that we do take a break!

This conference seeks to implement, apply and provide a space to put into practice, the recent reforms and work in the family violence sector state wide, to encourage our organisations and workers to centre lived experience.
