Where we are up to 

The Office of the Family Violence Principal Practitioner (OFVPP) seeks Aboriginal community representative reviews of family violence policies and processes.

We have engaged the Koori Justice Unit (KJU) and external Aboriginal services in the development and review of Family Violence training and other relevant family violence documents, policies and processes. For example, the Aboriginal Justice Caucus reviewed the Foundational Family Violence Training package and the Women, Victims and Families Collaborative Working Group (CWG) reviewed the companion Cultural Sensitivity Processes document.

The OFVPP advises Department of Justice and Community Safety (DJCS) stakeholders to consult with relevant Aboriginal services, including KJU, on family violence policies and processes in relation to their work.
