Title: Free from violence : Victoria's strategy to prevent family violence and all forms of violence against women. First action plan 2018-2021
Authors: State of Victoria
Keywords: Government policy;Prevention;Family violence;Violence against women;Australia;Victoria
Categories: Prevention
Year: 2018
Publisher: State of Victoria
Notes:  The First action plan of Free from violence (the First action plan) outlines how the Victorian Government will progress phase one of Free from violence over the next three years.

The level of investment and the breadth and depth of prevention action in this plan is a
game changer for Victoria, and builds on the long-term advocacy and innovation of the family violence support and prevention sectors and the critical leadership of victim survivors.

This action plan will make significant headway in challenging the long-held and false notion that violence is inevitable. It will provide an opportunity for the entire Victorian community to work together and take action to create a Victoria free from violence.

Delivering on Phase One of ree From Violence

Free from violence identifies three phases of activity. This first phase of implementation in Free from violence focuses on building the infrastructure, systems and support for a much larger primary prevention platform in Victoria, which is the focus of this action plan.

The Victorian Government will take immediate action to establish the key structures needed
to support what is an unprecedented investment in the prevention of family violence. We will continue to build knowledge where there are gaps; foster innovation in the design and delivery of prevention programs and policies; and ensure that gains are maximised by scaling up and expanding proven and promising projects. In doing so we will ensure that our investment is strategic, learning is shared and progress is accelerated. Short- and longer-term gains will be made for all Victorians as we work toward the ultimate goal of a Victoria free from violence.
