Alice Springs integrated response to family violence project

 

Overview

The Alice Springs integrated response to family violence project, part of the Alice Springs transformation plan, is a pilot project run to reduce family violence and help make homes, families and communities in Alice Springs safer. The project aims to teach young people about respectful relationships and introduce a new Family safety framework that allows agencies to work together to make women safer, and give coordinated support to women and children at risk of violence. It will also provide additional support services at court to prioritise family safety, increase offender accountability and promote behaviour change among offenders.

The Alice Springs integrated response to family violence project is managed by the Department of Children and Families (DCF) and the Department of Justice (DoJ), Northern Territory (NT). It was developed in consultation with local service providers and other stakeholders. The pilot will link government and local non-government agencies together, including the Alice Springs Women's Shelter, National Association of Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect (NAPCAN), Tangentyere Council, Central Australia Aboriginal Congress, local legal services and the NPY Women's Council.
