Rolling Action Plan 2017-2020

Ending Family Violence: Victoria’s Plan for Change (the 10 Year Plan) outlines a vision for a future where Victorians live free from family violence. 

The Rolling Action Plan (RAP) 2017-2020 is the next step towards implementing all 227 recommendations of the Royal Commission into Family Violence that will contribute to achieving that vision.

We will deliver a new Rolling Action Plan approximately every 3 years.

This first RAP focuses on the first phase of key initiatives and actions of the 10 Year Plan, including:

  • how they contribute to achieving outcomes
  • how they will be funded
  • the recommendations they deliver on.

The RAP outlines the government’s significant investment of $1.91 billion in family violence services and reform.

Our 10-year reform agenda

Since the Royal Commission delivered its final report, we have made significant progress in improving prevention and strengthening our responses to family violence.

We are designing for diversity at the outset, ensuring our reforms are:

  • inclusive
  • non-discriminatory
  • accessible for everyone.

Investment approach

Family violence was estimated to cost the Victorian economy $5.3 billion in 2015-16. The investment outlined in this plan will enable us to implement major reform initiatives to better support victims and reduce the impact on our community. 

We will make changes to the funding and accountability approach for family violence and related services. Reforming our funding system will enable services to meet the unique needs of people they support through increased flexibility in how funding is used. 

Our engagement and partnership approach

We have built, and will continue to strengthen, genuine and meaningful partnerships with victim survivors, the service sector and the community.

Our partners and other groups instrumental in delivering change are advising on the reform’s implementation.
