The Royal Commission into Family Violence (RCFV) saw unprecedented investment and efforts to tackle prevention and response to family violence in Victoria.

The Family Violence Reform Implementation Monitor (FVRIM) was established following the RCFV, to independently monitor and review the Victorian government and its agencies in delivering family violence reforms.

The FVRIM has called for Submissions from practitioners and organisations as follows:

  • How the service system, and users’ experiences of it, have changed since the Royal Commission
  • Looking forward: what is still required in the family violence reforms
  • Impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.

We want to ensure members’ experiences are heard! And invite you to contribute via this survey.

The ASU will also be meeting with the FVRIM, Jan Shuard, in late June to provide input on to what extent government and its agencies have:

  • Designed strategic directions for developing the workforce required to realise the family violence reforms based on the best available evidence
  • Achieved progress in implementation of the strategic directions to develop the necessary workforce
  • Established robust and effective governance arrangements to oversee the implementation of the strategic directions.

This is an opportunity for members working in and around FV to have your deidentified say! The ASU will make a collective submission on behalf of members and the ASU’s experience of involvement in governance bodies established as part of the RCFV implementation.

To participate and have a voice please complete our short survey.

If you would like to provide a more detailed (deidentified) response, the last section of the survey allows a further information gathering opportunity.  Please provide your input to the ASU by Tuesday 23 June 2020.

Submissions to the Monitor are open until 20 July 2020.
