Who is leading the change
- Department of Health and Human Services
The Victorian Minister for Housing, Disability and Ageing report annually to the Parliamentary Committee on Family Violence on:
- the extent of unmet housing demand among people affected by family violence - including the average and range of current stays by women and children in crisis and transitional accommodation
- progress in meeting the benchmark of 6 weeks in crisis accommodation
- proposed actions for meeting the continuing housing demand from people affected by family violence
It is anticipated that data on unmet housing demand for people experiencing family violence will be released as part of regular reporting from 2021 as part of a proposed rolling supply and delivery plan being developed by the Department of Health and Human Services. The plan will publicly release the intent of government investment in housing forward four years and include information on housing demand; and how new housing supply will provide more and better housing for key cohorts, including those affected by Family Violence.
Implementation timeframes have been extended to 1 July 2021. Further information on the current and planned family violence housing initiatives can be found at the Department of Health and Human Services website
Forecast implementation date: 1 July 2021.
