Forums are open to anyone in Melbourne’s NMR who works towards the safety of victim survivors.
NIFVS face-to-face training and events have been postponed until at least the end of 2021.
The NIFVS team convenes a forum several times a year. The forums focus on enhancing workforce capacity in specific areas identified in the NIFVS Regional Plan.
