Family Violence Co-ordination

The Government is investing $2.8 million for one further year to enable communities to continue joined-up, innovative approaches to the co-ordination of family violence responses.

Family violence is a complex social problem and it often requires a response from more than one agency. There is strong evidence to show that joined-up, co-ordinated responses are more effective.

A co-ordinated approach allows government and community organisations to work together at the local level to develop a strategic community-led response to family violence. The funding will allow communities to build sector capability and local leadership, improve effectiveness of services, and create organisational and community environments that enable positive change.

This funding continues the Government’s support for family violence co-ordination.

Funding is available for one year as social services are refocused through a change programme.
