Australia's first Royal Commission into Family Violence provides a once in a generation opportunity to examine our system from the ground up and put victim survivors at the centre of family violence reform. It has investigated criminal law corrections and the courts. It has considered the role of support services, the health system and alcohol and drug treatment services, as well as those of refuges, housing and education. It has also considered the resources and tools available to police.

The Royal Commission has provided practical recommendations to prevent and respond to family violence, based on an examination of the current service system and best practice approaches. The Victorian Government has committed to implementing each of the 227 recommendations.
The Victorian Government is committed to a decade long agenda of action and investment to address family violence in our community. Key to this agenda is working collaboratively with victim survivors and the family violence sector in the implementation of the Royal Commission's recommendations and in establishing strong and enduring governance arrangements.
