More Resources to Address Adolescent Family Violence
The State Government is expanding the Adolescent Family Violence in the Home program.
Six organisations will share in more than $17 million to deliver integrated early intervention responses for adolescents who use violence.
The successful providers are Anglicare, Australian Childhood Foundation, Berry Street, Melbourne City Mission, Uniting and Quantum Support Services.
The providers will deliver trauma informed, evidence-based services to young people – providing a coordinated response that supports a young person’s developmental and therapeutic needs and safety for the entire family.
The new model of care draws on evidence-based interventions and was developed following a review and analysis of national and international programs, approaches and research.
An additional $5.7 million has also been allocated to Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisations to continue to deliver Aboriginal led and community designed approaches to adolescent family violence in the home.
