Get Involved

Why should our service be involved with the RFVP?

The Regional Family Violence Partnership welcomes new members and opportunities to broaden our partnership work in the region. By participating in the RFVP you have an opportunity to make a significant contribution to improving how our region addresses family violence. You will stand together with a network of organisations, practitioners and community members who share a common goal to support the region as a place that promotes respectful relationships and does not tolerate violence and abuse. As a member, you will be able to:

  • Contribute to innovative discussions on family violence reform
  • Participate in working groups and projects
  • Come to our annual Members and Practitioners Forum
  • Receive invitations to educational forums and special events

What are the ways to get involved with the RFVP?

Working Groups

To enable family violence system reform to occur on a regional level, the RFVP has developed several time limited and topic specific Working Groups that are accountable to the partnership and the Annual Strategic Plan. Anyone in the region, including those from signatory and non-signatory agencies under the Memorandum of Understanding, is welcome to join a working group. Our current working groups are:

  • Workforce Development Working Group
  • Data Working Group
  • Information Sharing Working Group
  • Think Child Protocol
  • Cultural Partnerships Reference Group
  • Children's Consultative Group
  • Preventing Violence against Women Community of Practice
  • Justice Reference Group

Annual Members and Practitioners Forum

Each year all the members of the partnership come together at our Annual Members and Practitioners Forum to celebrate achievements over the previous year and look forward to continuing our efforts in improving the family violence service system in our region. At this forum we also nominate and elect chairs for the Working Groups to undertake the next year's strategic plan.

Bi-Annual Family Violence Sector Induction Forums

The Family Violence Sector Induction Forum is an orientation for workers who are new to the family violence service system or the eastern metropolitan region. These sessions aim to give participants an introduction to the family violence system in the EMR, with presentations from key services in the region.
