This will be a virtual event and is open to sector organisations and associated peak bodies and their members, and other government departments. The program for the week is designed to meet the needs of those working in family violence and related sectors and incorporates a two-hour online session each day.
The sessions will provide the latest insights into contemporary family violence practice, highlighting:
- collaboration and information sharing
- experiences of children and young people
- working through an intersectional lens, and
- improved understanding of coercive control.
As the lead division for the whole of Victorian Government family violence reform, Family Safety Victoria staff will provide context for the broader reform agenda in each session to support greater understanding of family violence and child wellbeing. The centrality of lived experience is a key feature of the Week’s events. Representatives from the Victim Survivor Advisory Council (VSAC) will be joining the panel discussions.
