The Family and Domestic Violence Pilot Project Program forms part of the Commonwealth Government’s initiative for Improving Health System Responses to Family and Domestic Violence. This initiative was funded as part of a broader suite of programs to support the Fourth Action Plan (2019-22) to Prevent Violence Against Women and Children.
Family Violence Pilot Project is situated in the family violence early intervention initiatives. The project seeks to provide a more integrated and seamless service response across primary health care with a particular focus on General Practice, community service organisations and specialist family violence services, which supports effective early identification and intervention of clients who are at risk of or who are experiencing family violence.
The Family Violence Connector roles will target General Practice at a workforce, organisational and systems level, to improve effective early identification and support for clients at risk of or who are experiencing family violence.
