Family Violence Memorial Unveiled
A Family Violence Memorial has been unveiled at St Andrews Place, Melbourne to honour the lives of those lost to family violence. It has been established as a space to stand in solidarity with victim survivors and share in hope and healing.
The memorial also shines a light on the vital work being done in Victoria to build a future free from violence and the role we all have to play in this and serves as a permanent reminder to those experiencing family violence that support is available to them.
Designed in partnership with members of Victim Survivors’ Advisory Council and the City of Melbourne, the memorial places the stories and shared hopes of victim survivors at its centre. It holds space for the lives lost, and the potential those lives held, as well as a place for hope for a future free from violence.
