What progress? 18 months after the Royal Commission into family violence

The Victorian Government’s response to the recommendations of the Royal Commission into Family Violence is one of the most ambitious and far-reaching pieces of social policy ever undertaken by an Australian government. A major public forum at this year’s Public Sector Week offers a unique opportunity to hear from our State’s leading experts about what has happened, what has worked, and what still needs to be done.

Hear directly from people who have been working on the frontline in this vital area of public sector service reform – including the CEO of the Aboriginal Family Violence Prevention and Legal Service, Victoria’s first Ambassador for the Prevention of Elder Abuse, and the head of Victoria Police’s Family Violence Command.

How well have we been able to bring together political authorisation, new resources, different ways of thinking, organisational planning, service reform, and community engagement to tackle our State’s most pernicious social scourge?
