Empower Indigenous communities to overcome family violence

Indigenous Family Violence is a national issue that requires the involvement of many stakeholders across the country to overcome.

The 5th annual Overcoming Indigenous Family Violence Forum has partnered with Djirra and brings together representatives from government, police, legal services, not-for-profit, community organisation, and family violence support services. They all have a vital role to play in tackling indigenous family violence.

During the course of this 2-day conference and 1-day workshop, we will explore critical issues in the indigenous family violence space, including state and federal government initiatives; how frontline services are engaging in prevention, early intervention and response; building better relationships between police and local communities; hearing directly from survivors of family violence; working more effectively with perpetrators to achieve positive behaviour change and empowering indigenous communities to prevent child abuse and neglect.
