Overview

The Family Violence Reform Implementation Monitor was established following the Royal Commission into Family Violence and independently monitors and reviews the Victorian Government and its agencies in delivering the state-wide family violence reform.

The Monitor reports annually to Parliament and the community on the progress of the implementation of the reforms. Monitoring is now underway for the fourth and final report due to be tabled in Parliament in 2021 as legislated in the Family Violence Reform Implementation Monitor Act 2016.

What are we looking at?

The Monitor’s final report is examining what has changed since the Royal Commission into Family Violence released its report in 2016, and what remains to be done.

We are seeking your views on:

  • how the family violence service system, and users’ experience of it, has changed since the Royal Commission
  • looking forward: what is still required in the family violence reforms
  • the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • Contribute your views

    The Family Violence Reform Implementation Monitor is seeking submissions from:

  • organisations that work with people who have experienced or perpetrated family violence – both specialist family violence services and generalist services such as health, legal assistance and housing
  • individual practitioners who work with people who have experienced or perpetrated family violence - share how your practice and the experience of your clients has changed and what still needs to change
  • organisations that represent and advocate for family violence victim survivors.

  • The Monitor welcomes case examples from your organisation or your own practice that illustrate the points raised in your submission. Please ensure when you are providing case examples that individuals are not identified.

    Submissions may address specific areas of the family violence service system, where you or your organisation has a particular area of expertise, as well as broader system issues.

    You can contribute a submission by:

  • Option one: Uploading a document that addresses the questions .
  • Option two: Typing your answers directly into the website in response to the questions.

  • We understand that many organisations are under significant pressures at the current time, and the Monitor welcomes submissions in whatever format and style is manageable for you and your organisation.
