About the role
The Attorney General and Minister for the Prevention of Domestic Violence is calling for applications from suitably qualified persons with experience and expertise in the provision of domestic violence services for appointment to the Domestic Violence Death Review Team (DVDRT). The appointment is for a term of up to 2 years.
The DVDRT was established in 2010 under the Coroners Act 2009 to:
- review closed cases of domestic violence deaths occurring in New South Wales;
- analyse data to identify patterns and trends relating to such deaths;
- make recommendations as to legislation, policies, practices and services for implementation by government and non-government agencies and the community to prevent or reduce the likelihood of such deaths;
- establish and maintain a database about such deaths; and
- undertake research that aims to help prevent or reduce the likelihood of such deaths.
The DVDRT is convened by the State Coroner and includes representatives from relevant government agencies and non-government service providers and other experts.
The DVDRT reports to Parliament biennially and all tabled reports are available at https://www.coroners.nsw.gov.au/coroners-court/resources/domestic-violence-death-review.html#Reports2

About the organisation
On 1 July 2019, the Department of Family and Community Services (FACS) and Department of Justice became a single department, named the Department of Communities and Justice.
The new department will enable services to better work together to support everyone's right to access justice and other help for families, and promote early intervention and inclusion, with benefits for the whole community.
The Department of Communities and Justice will be the lead agency in the new Stronger Communities Cluster.
The new Stronger Communities Cluster brings together, and replaces, the Family and Communities and Justice Clusters. It brings all government services targeted at achieving safe, just, inclusive and resilient communities under one roof.
How to apply
