The agency is leading the implementation of many of the government’s family violence reforms.

Family Safety Victoria is a newly established agency with a dedicated focus on delivering family violence reform including:

  • establishing and operationalising 17 Support and Safety Hubs across Victoria
  • establishing a Central Information Point, which will allow police, courts and government services to track perpetrators and keep victims safe
  • establishing and housing the new Centre for Workforce Excellence to build workforce capacity and capability in partnership with the sector.

The agency is working towards building the capacity of the workforce which has a role in ending family violence and improve information sharing. This will help to keep adults and children who experience family violence safe and provide them with the support they need to recover.

It is also working across government and with the community services sector to introduce new practices to make it easier for you to get the help, protection, and support you need. We will make sure victim survivors of family violence remain at the heart of these changes.
