Recommendation 004


Who is leading the change

Family Safety Victoria

The Victorian Government facilitate the roll-out of the Risk Assessment and Management Panels, or RAMPs, as a priority, ensuring that this includes:

  • adequate resourcing and support—case management and links to long-term support
  • standardised referral guidance, to be used by all agencies, that is aligned to the revised Family Violence Risk Assessment and Risk Management Framework to identify high-risk cases for referral to RAMPs
  • organisational and practice guidelines for effective RAMP operation, supported by a targeted workforce development and training program
  • processes for supporting oversight by Regional Family Violence Integration Committees
  • implementation oversight by the Cabinet Family Violence Sub-committee and Victorian Secretaries’ Board Sub-Committee on Family Violence Reform
