Integrated domestic & family violence service
The Integrated Domestic and Family Violence Strategy program is a multi-agency response to prevent the escalation of domestic and family violence among high-risk target groups and in targeted communities.
The program aims to improve outcomes for people affected by domestic and family violence, including children.
Why is this program important?
Integrated case management is core to the program. This is a response to family violence that goes beyond coordinating policies, systems and information-sharing to providing case management services which offer a unified, multi-agency approach.
The program works with victims of family and domestic violence, including children and young people, as well as perpetrators, as long as it doesn’t compromise the safety and wellbeing of victims and other family members.Priority may be given to high-risk groups including:
- people from disadvantaged and from rural and remote communities
- people with a disability or special needs
- Aboriginal people
- people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds
- repeat victims of domestic and family violence
- victims of domestic and family violence who previously refused services.
What does the program deliver?
Coordinated services to clients through a multi-disciplinary team and is based on clear referral pathways between service agencies such as Police, Health, Family and Community Services and non-government support agencies.
