Strategic priority 3

System change: preventing and responding to family violence is systemic and enduring.

This priority contributes to whole of government efforts to ensure the family violence system:

  • is accessible, integrated, available and equitable
  • intervenes early to identify and respond
  • is person-centred and responsive and uses a trauma-informed approach
  • is supported by skilled, capable workforces that reflect the communities they serve.

To achieve this, we will provide adequate support and resourcing to family violence, sexual assault, child and family services and programs, to make them more sustainable and so that they have the capability and capacity to deliver high quality and effective services that better meet demand.

We will work with our stakeholders to ensure that the family violence and sexual violence workforces are healthy and safe, engaged and supported to collaborate, learn and develop.

We will enable multi-agency collaboration to increase the rates and effectiveness of identifying and meeting people’s needs and to enhance risk management and reduction. We will also support the safe sharing of information across the system at the right time, in line with required schemes, to help prevent further violence, keep victim survivors safe and hold perpetrators accountable.
