Regional Integration Coordinators (RICs)

A vital part of the Integrated Family Violence System (IFVS) has been the establishment of Family Violence Regional Integration Coordinators (RICs).

The role of the RICs is to develop and support partnerships between regional family violence services (women, children and men’s services) and other key sectors and services, such as Child FIRST/Family Services, child protection, mental health services, homelessness services, housing services, Courts, Police and Indigenous Family Violence Regional Action Groups.

RICs also convene local Family Violence Regional Integration Committees, groups of services that work with family violence and meet regularly to identify issues and potential improvements in the system’s response to women, children and men. The local Committees feed information to regional and state-wide committees who monitor and work to improve the system response across Victoria.

For more information about the RICs and regional committees, see below for contact details and (where available) websites for each region.
