Description

The Eastern Domestic Violence Service would like to welcome teachers and education support staff to take part in Family Violence Training for schools, taking place in the Glen Waverley Regional Office.

Schools play an important role in addressing the underlying causes of family violence. By learning more about how family violence affects schools, and what you can do to promote respect and equality in your school, you will be better able to support school staff and students. Many school staff have experiences of responding to the needs of students who are witnessing violence at home, experiencing violence in their own intimate relationships or who have been a victim/survivor of online gendered violence.

Eastern Domestic Violence Service (EDVOS) is the largest specialist family violence service in Melbourne’s eastern metropolitan region (EMR). EDVOS will support school staff and teachers to build confidence and capacity to Recognise, Respond and Refer appropriately to disclosures of family violence.

  • Better equipped to respond appropriately to disclosures of family violence;
  • Build a capacity to work with students, parents and other schools staff on issues related to family violence; and
