Indigenous Family Violence Partnership Forum

The Indigenous Family Violence Partnership Forum was established in 2005 to enable the Government and Aboriginal communities to address issues of Aboriginal family violence together. It continues to connect Aboriginal community members to key decision makers across government. Importantly, it provides the opportunity for government and community to address family violence issues together.

The Partnership Forum is the driver of the 10 Year Plan: Strong Culture, Strong Peoples, and Strong Families: Towards a safer future for Indigenous families and communities (10 Year Plan).
