Call for family violence submissions openFriday 1 May 2015
The Victorian Royal Commission into Family Violence began its five week consultation program on 20 April 2015.
The bulk of the community consultations will involve both people affected directly by family violence and those who work with people affected by family violence. The sessions will be group based and held in metropolitan Melbourne and across regional Victoria.
Anyone whose experiences and ideas may assist the work of the Royal Commission in developing practical recommendations for change should call 1800 365 100 to register their interest in attending a session. People from all backgrounds and experience are encouraged to register.
Over 30 community consultation sessions will be held across Victoria. Spaces are limited and the Royal Commission will not be able to visit all areas of the state.
Community consultation is just one of the ways in with the Royal Commission is gathering views and information. The Royal Commission also invites individuals and organisations to make a written submission. An issues paper has been developed to help guide those wishing to make a written submission.
