Beyond the immediate crisis response, we are supporting victim survivors over the longer term so they have security, independence, and stability in all aspects of their lives.

We are investing $98.5 million over 4 years to enhance and increase therapeutic support for victim survivors, including:

  • delivering flexible support packages, providing victims with assistance beyond the crisis period, including longer term rental and mortgage subsidies where required
  • increasing the number of therapeutic interventions across the state, helping more than 11,000 victims over 4 years
  • designing specialised therapeutic interventions for children experiencing family violence and expanding therapeutic interventions across the state, to support more than 3,500 children over 4 years
  • resourcing Aboriginal communities and services to deliver their own solutions to family violence

To greater assist victim survivors to recover from economic abuse and build their capacity for an independent economic future, we are investing $6 million over 4 years to continue specialist family violence financial counselling positions.
