The Federal Government has committed an additional $25 million package to help frontline services to intervene early to prevent violence from occurring.
The package includes:
• trauma-informed therapeutic services for Indigenous children affected by family violence to break the cycle of intergenerational violence;
• services for perpetrators to encourage behaviour change and prevent future offending;
• intensive family-focused case management to address behaviours that lead to family violence;
• increasing the capacity of family violence prevention legal services to deliver holistic, case-managed crisis support to Indigenous women and children experiencing family violence.
