Play your part in shaping the 10-year Family Violence Industry Plan

The Victorian Government is developing a 10 year Industry Plan as a key recommendation of the Royal Commission into Family Violence.

But for this to be possible, a clearer picture of all workers who, in some way, interact with family violence is needed.

That’s why the family violence workforce census has been developed.

The census is for everyone who plays a role in preventing and responding to family violence in Victoria. It represents a landmark opportunity for the voices of the workforce to be heard.

Are you a financial counsellor, psychologist, teacher or support worker? Or perhaps you work in housing, legal services, justice and corrections, education, migrant services or mental health?

Whatever you do, there’s a high chance it touches on family violence (and you may not even realise it) – so your input is needed.

Participation is voluntary and you won’t be asked for your name.

The census will close Friday 5 May.

Strong participation in the census will help government to address the industry planning challenges highlighted by the Royal Commission, and so we encourage you to share this widely with your networks.

VCOSS is proud to be working in partnership with Domestic Violence Victoria to support the Victorian Government’s census project. Learn more about the project here.
