Description

In response to the recommendations of the Royal Commission into Family Violence, the AOD sector is tasked with bringing a family violence lens to current practice.

Family Safety Victoria (FSV) developed the Responding to Family Violence Capability Framework (the Framework), which describes the foundational skill set required to respond to all forms of family violence.

Under the reforms, there are major changes for state funded AOD agencies which are now prescribed under the Multi Agency Risk Assessment and Management (MARAM) Framework and are prescribed Information Sharing Entities (ISE) for the Family Violence Information Sharing Scheme (FVISS) and Child Information Sharing Scheme (CISS).

VAADA has been commissioned by FSV to educate the AOD sector on the Framework and develop a plan for the integration of the framework in the AOD sector and by the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) to provide practice guidance to the sector in the application of the MARAM and information sharing schemes.

In July VAADA provided FSV with a comprehensive report on the current state of the AOD sector in relation to the Framework and has since started to design of a plan for the integration of family violence practice in the Victorian AOD setting. As part of the design process, VAADA seeks the feedback and input of the AOD sector as well as sees value to include the knowledge of allied sectors.

This interactive day will include:

  • Family Violence reforms: latest Updates from Family Safety Victoria
  • VAADA’s latest tools to support the practical implementation of the Family Violence Information Sharing Scheme and Child Information Sharing Scheme.
  • VAADA's findings of the sectors current state in relation to the capability framework
  • Discussion of opportunities and barriers for the integration of the Framework
  • Workshop a proposed plan for the integration of family violence capabilities in AOD practice

The day is organised by VAADA
