Overcoming Indigenous Family Violence Conference

12 Mar. 2019 to 13 Mar. 2019

Indigenous Family Violence is a national issue that requires the involvement of many stakeholders across the country to overcome.

The 5th Annual Overcoming Indigenous Family Violence Forum brings together representatives from government, police and legal services, not-for-profit, community organisations, family violence support services and shelters. They all have a vital role to play in tackling the menace of family violence which has and continues to afflict the lives of many men, women and children in the indigenous community.

During the course of this 2-day conference and 1-day workshop, we will explore critical issues in the indigenous family violence space, including state and federal government initiatives; how frontline services are engaging in prevention, early intervention and response; building better relationships between police and local communities; hearing directly from survivors of family violence; working more effectively with perpetrators to achieve positive behaviour change and empowering indigenous communities to prevent child abuse and neglect.

Having previously been held in Cairns, Brisbane and Darwin, Overcoming Indigenous Family Violence comes to Melbourne in 2019. We remain committed to delivering relevant, practical and effective solutions that are borne directly out of experience from the coal-face. Working with our Advisory Board of Elders and experts, we have striven to ensure that the agenda addresses the concerns of those closely involved in the indigenous family violence space.
