Regional Integration Committees
Family violence Regional Integration Committees (FVRICs) are a vital part of Victoria’s family violence system. Regional Integration Committees bring together representatives from regional family violence services and other key sectors and services, including child and family services, child protection, mental health services, homelessness services, housing services, courts, police and Indigenous Family Violence Regional Action Groups.
Principal Strategic Advisors
Each Regional Integration Committee is convened by a Family Violence Principal Strategic Advisor (PSA). The PSAs work to drive the local implementation of key family violence reforms in their area, build partnerships and collaborate across sectors, build workers’ capability and provide insight into operations, issues, functions and opportunities in their region.
