Addressing family violence in communities recovering from emergencies

Research has demonstrated an increased risk of escalating family violence after emergencies. It is well recognised that specific vulnerabilities exist for women, men and people with diverse gender identities, and that additional vulnerabilities such as age, culture, and disability, can further impact the experience of family violence and access to support services.

The strategy will:

  • increase awareness of local and regional family violence risk and impacts
  • ensure family violence issues are considered in local and regional recovery planning, and
  • support the implementation of prevention and support initiatives, including gendered and inclusive recovery approaches.
