This 10 year plan was written by the Indigenous Family Violence Partnership Forum of Indigenous community representatives from the 10 regions across the State, Indigenous organisations and senior representatives from government departments. Our work grew out of our respect for Indigenous culture and history and our joint concern over the levels of violence in Victoria’s Indigenous communities.

This plan outlines our vision for the next 10 years, the objectives for us to reach and the specific actions we need to take. Creating a safer Victoria and promoting healing will take many years, particularly given the disadvantage experienced by Indigenous people and the effects of transgenerational abuse and trauma.
