As stated earlier, the framework is a strategic response to guide:

  • Service design, implementation and evaluation: Aboriginal services and communities in Victoria will apply the framework to guide the design, implementation and evaluation of holistic healing approaches to family violence that support Aboriginal people in their communities in their journeys of healing.
  • Funding guidelines, compliance, indicator measures and evaluation: the Victorian Government as a whole will use the framework as a blue print to direct funding to Aboriginal services and communities in Victoria who demonstrate holistic healing approaches to family violence, recognising self-determination as a pivotal design feature. This will require the government to adopt new funding guidelines, reconsider current compliance measures, value Aboriginal knowledge and approaches to evaluation including definitions of what constitutes success in line with this framework.
