Description

With momentous reforms underway to address family violence in Victoria and across Australia, there is an increased acknowledgement that children – once considered the ‘silent victims’ of family violence – are impacted in their own right. Targeted responses that consider and address particular risks to children’s safety are therefore essential. This is reflected in the recommendations from the Royal Commission into Family Violence and the subsequent reform agenda led by the Victorian Government.

This Practice Inquiry contributes to an evidence base to support these developments by providing insights from the practitioners who work with women, children and families impacted by family violence.
