Domestic violence packages 2.17
We will consider the efficacy of packages offered to women and their children experiencing violence, based on the Victorian Government’s model that provides financial assistance to women experiencing domestic and family violence for things like rent, furnishings and education.
What have we achieved
This work is ongoing and is being led by the Office For Women in the Department of Human Services.
What is next
The $1.7 million funded from the National Partnership on COVID -19 will be used as the basis for review. The Office for Women will lead data collections from service providers.
What difference will we make
These brokerage packages, for people experiencing abuse and violence, are being used to pay for immediate support including transport, safety upgrades to property, financial counselling and support for children.
