Inclusion and equity in family violence matters
How we work together to provide a safe and inclusive response to family violence is the focus of day two of Moorabbin's Specialist Family Violence Court training.
Participants will hear from local experts on:
- Intersectionality, what it means and how it can inform the work of the Specialist Court
- The unique and complex ways in which family violence impacts diverse communities
- How to work with local community groups and services to provide a safe and inclusive response
Background – Royal Commission into Family Violence
In 2016, the Royal Commission into Family Violence (RCFV) recommended that Specialist Family Violence Courts be rolled out across the State as part of a broad range of reforms. These Courts involve an integrated response to family violence and rely on the effective operation of a judicially-led, multidisciplinary team.
The College has been funded to support Victoria's new Specialist Family Violence Courts through education, training and resources. The multi-disciplinary programs are designed in partnership with the local community and service providers.
