Bringing together Australian Government, Not-for-Profits and key stakeholders to eliminate Indigenous family violence 

The Federal Government has pledged a further $39 million over the next 3 years for family law and family violence services delivered through Community Legal Centres and allocated a $375 million boost to crisis accommodation for the homeless, especially vulnerable young Australians and victims of domestic violence. These supports draw on the recommendations of the Third Action Plan under the National Plan to Reduce Violence Against Women and their Children, re-affirming the Government’s serious commitment to combat the crisis of domestic and family violence in Australia.

Family violence in the Indigenous community is over-represented within this national issue and requires nationwide effort to overcome. Our priorities in tackling this issue should be aligned with the unique and different needs of Indigenous Australians. The involvement and engagement of the Indigenous community themselves who are most affected is key to the development and implementation of any services working to prevent and overcome family violence.

In Brisbane 2016, we created a Forum for all to listen to the real issues and concerns of the Indigenous community. At Cairns February 2017, we carried through the journey to empower both Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians to be part of the solution. Join us as we continue our journey together to overcome Indigenous family violence in Australia.

Continuing the journey towards a future free from violence

This August, we will be holding the 3rd Overcoming Indigenous Family Violence Forum to take the next step in our journey – to engage. Focusing on collaborations and partnerships, you will learn how to form strategic alliances and improve relationships to deliver more effective programs and services to address family violence.
