Family Violence Reform

The Royal Commission into Family Violence

The Victorian Royal Commission into Family Violence held 25 days of public hearings; it commissioned research and held community conversations with more than 800 Victorians. It also recieved almost 1000 written submissions. The Commission provided a once-in-a-generation opportunity to examine our system from the ground up and put victim survivors at the centre of family violence reform. The Commission handed down its final report on 29 March 2016. The Victorian Government committed to implementing all 227 recommendations. The Royal Commission report acknowledged the inherent value of regional integration. Recommendation 193 recognised that Family Violence Regional Integration Committees (FVRICs) should be part of the governance structure ‘for implementing the Commission’s recommendations and overseeing systemic improvements in family violence policy’ (Royal Commission into Family Violence Summary, 2016, p.97).
