New family violence agency commences

New family violence agency commences

The Victorian government has appointed Sue Clifford as Chief Executive Officer of its new family violence agency, Family Safety Victoria.

From 1 July, Family Safety Victoria will be responsible for driving and delivering the government's $1.9 billion action plan to end family violence.

As Victoria’s first-ever agency dedicated solely to family violence reform, Family Safety Victoria will lead the implementation of new initiatives, including establishing the Central Information Point that will allow police, courts and government services to track perpetrators and keep victims safe.

It will also be responsible for establishing the Centre for Workforce Excellence and 17 Support and Safety Hubs across the state, to give women and children the coordinated support they need to recover.
