Victorian LGBTIQ Strategy Submission

DV Vic welcomed the 2015 Victorian Family Violence Royal Commission recommendations aimed at creating a more inclusive family violence service sector. DV Vic recognises that family violence occurs in all communities and has been particularly engaged over recent years with providing direct support to the Specialist Family Violence Service (SVFS) sector as well as championing change in regard to access and inclusion for LGBTIQ people.

Rather than addressing specific questions in the LGBTIQ Strategy Discussion Paper we have sought to provide an overview of our key learnings that touch on questions raised for consideration, particularly in relation to inclusive services and family violence. We have done this in the hopes that our experience will provide guidance for the development of the strategy and contribute to greater inclusion of Victorian LGBTIQ communities across service sectors.
