Domestic and Family Violence Risk Assessment and Management Framework

Responsible government

  • Australian Capital Territory

Fourth Action Plan actions

  • Improve support and service system responses
    • 16 Enable workforces to provide trauma-informed support with a focus on safety and recovery to victims and survivors of domestic, family and sexual violence.
    • 17 Collaborate across services, sectors and workforces to ensure responses to women affected by domestic, family and sexual violence are coordinated, meet women’s needs, avoid women having to retell their story and promote their recovery.

What are we doing?

Following calls from both community sector agencies and government, the ACT Government in consultation with the sector developed a draft Domestic and Family Violence Risk Assessment and Management Framework to guide more integrated and coordinated responses to domestic and family violence. The Common Risk Assessment and Management Framework is being funded through existing resources.

What is next?

As at July 2020, the common Risk Assessment and Management Framework is being tested in different pilot sites. This testing phase will inform finalisation of the Framework.

What difference will we make?

The intended outcome of a Common Risk Assessment and Management Framework is to assist all ACT services to consistently and effectively identify domestic and family violence risk with the aim of earlier intervention and improved access to support and information.
