Community Conversations

We held a series of community conversations to build a shared understanding about how Victoria will better support and address family violence into the future.

Victorians shared how they think an improved system should work, how together we can form and support safe and healthy relationships and create a society driven by respect.

In September 2016, at 6 different locations across Victoria, more than 600 Victorians took part in the family violence conversation in their communities.
