The Orange network plays an important part in ensuring Victorians that are experiencing or at risk of family violence or who need support with the wellbeing of their children have access to coordinated services.
Practitioners at The Orange Door network work with people to provide coordinated and tailored support, including immediate supports for women, children, young people and families, risk assessments, safety planning and help to access a range of community-based services. Practitioners can help people access longer term support including case management, financial counselling and legal assistance, and provide advice to professionals, and concerned family members and friends.
They also work with people using violence to engage them and connect them to services which can support them to change their behaviour.
The Orange Door network welcomes people of any age, gender, sexuality, ability and cultural and religious backgrounds tailoring support to meet the diverse needs of each family member, including responding to children and young people in their own right. This support is provided face to face, via phone and online.
