Families ACT Forum on Domestic Violence


Families ACT brought members and other experts working in domestic and family violence together for a half-day forum on domestic violence, with the aim of identifying best practice in the sector. The forum panel suggested a specialised family violence court and magistrate, as well as increased community awareness and ownership as necessary steps in addressing the issue and increasing support for victims of violence. 

The Forum and its outcomes were covered by the Canberra Times and ABC news:
