Family violence Violence against women Violence prevention Victoria

Everybody Matters: Inclusion and Equity Statement sets out the Victorian government's long-term vision for the creation of a family violence system that is more inclusive, responsive and accessible to all Victorians. It acknowledges and recognises the diversity inherent within each of us, and the need for family violence and universal services to build a better understanding of the barriers that can prohibit inclusion and access through the understanding and application of an intersectionality framework.

The statement’s vision for an inclusive, safe, responsive and accountable system for all Victorians will mean that anyone seeking help for family violence will be able to choose what service they access and know they will receive the help they need. This is within our grasp if we embrace our roles as champions, challenge our current systems, and strive for change that will deliver choice for all.
