Women and children who have experienced violence and men who use violence enter the family violence service system through a variety of channels.
The pathways into the system in the northern metropolitan region are shown below. These pathway maps may be useful to professionals wishing to make referrals into the family violence system or gain a better picture of the system in the north.
NIFVS acknowledges the traditional owners of the land on which we provide our services, the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and future and express our hope for reconciliation, justice and the recognition of the ongoing living culture of all Aboriginal people.
