Dhelk Dja Partnership Forum

The Dhelk Dja Partnership Forum was established in 2005 to enable the Victorian Government and Aboriginal communities to address issues of Aboriginal family violence.

Our role

To connect Aboriginal community members to key decision makers across government so they can address family violence issues together.

The Partnership Forum is the driver of the 10-year plan: 

The plan was launched in June 2008 and provides the strategic framework to deliver services to address Aboriginal family violence in the short, medium and long term.
