The State government is funding specialist services for LGBTI people who experience or are at risk of family violence. The funding will support family violence referral, counselling and support, peer support, early intervention and perpetrator intervention programs. This work will involve secondary consultation to mainstream family violence organisations across Victoria.
Drummond Street Services will lead the new partnership, alongside Switchboard Victoria, Transgender Victoria and the Victorian AIDS Council. (Source: Premiers Media Centre, 9 August 2017)
