Victorian Royal Commission into Family Violence releases final report

The Royal Commission into Family Violence report was tabled in the Victorian Parliament on Wednesday, 30 March 2016.

The Commission’s multi-volume report canvasses the many views heard by the Commission during its consultation processes and covers a broad range of topics including risk assessment, information sharing, service system pathways, police, courts, offences and sentencing, housing, financial security, recovery, the experience of children and young people and people from diverse communities, system governance and oversight, industry planning, primary prevention, and the role the health system, faith communities and workplaces can play in addressing family violence.

The Commission’s 227 recommendations are directed at improving the foundations of the current system, seizing opportunities to transform the way that we respond to family violence, and building the structures that will guide and oversee a long-term reform program that deals with all aspects of family violence.
