Information Sharing

FVISS & CISS

The Family Violence Information Sharing Scheme

The Family Violence Information Sharing Scheme, or FVISS, enables prescribed organisations and services to share information to facilitate assessment and management of family violence risk to children and adults. Together with the Child Information Sharing Scheme (CISS) these schemes create a more collaborative, integrated system that will help improve outcomes for all Victorian children and families. Read about FVISS on the Vic Gov website
The Informing Our Practice resources are learning tools designed to support AOD and Mental Health clinicians to use the Family Violence Information Sharing Scheme (FVISS).
