About Family Safety Victoria

Family Safety Victoria was created on 1 July 2017 to deliver family violence reform and drive action to end family violence.

Our role

Family Safety Victoria works to:

  • implement key recommendations from the Royal Commission into Family Violence
  • make it easier for people to get the help they need
  • ensure people with lived experience and people with specialist expertise inform and guide the reform  
  • bring organisations together to create new and coordinated ways to respond to family violence, and better support families

The family violence system we are building is inclusive, culturally safe and gives children and young people a voice. 

We are united by a common goal: to keep women, children, young people and families safe. Find out how we protect the privacy of individuals with appropriate information sharing.

Our work so far  

We work with our sector and partners to lead a coordinated approach to keep women, children and young people safe. Together we're making sure our service-responses are inclusive, accessible, informed by research and lived experience.
