About the organisation
In 2021, Domestic Violence Victoria (DV Vic) and the Domestic Violence Resource Centre Victoria (DVRCV) are merging to become a new entity.
This merger brings the peak body for Victoria’s specialist family violence services supporting victim survivors together with the state’s only specialist family violence Registered Training Organisation; combining our strength, capacity and resources for greater impact.
Our work is underpinned by intersectional feminism – as set out in the Code of Practice: Principles and Standards for Specialist Family Violence Services for Victim-Survivors – informed by an understanding of the gendered nature of violence and with the interests of all victim survivors at the heart of everything we do.
We apply a specialist lens across primary prevention, early intervention, response and recovery to:
- Develop practice and support workforces
- Strengthen and connect organisations, sectors and systems
- Build momentum for social change
- Build a strong peak organisation
We are in the process of re-branding the merged organisation to ensure a truly collaborative and equal new peak body. DV Vic and DVRCV is committed to providing flexible and accessible working arrangements for all. This includes people with a disability, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, culturally, religiously and linguistically diverse people, young people, older people, women, and gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and gender diverse, intersex or queer people. We recognise the strength and value in diversity, remain open to new approaches and actively foster an inclusive workplace that celebrates the contribution made by all our people.
