About the role
This is an exciting opportunity to provide practice leadership and expert advice on best practice service provision at the intersection of family violence, sexual assault and disability, including supporting the development of a statewide approach and contributing to the development of practice guidance for the family violence and sexual assault sector. A big part of this role is capacity building and building relationships with a range of services to improve responses for people with disability experiencing FV and SA.
The Family Violence and Disability Practice Leader initiative is focused on strengthening family violence and sexual assault services to better respond to people with disabilities and ensure they can access the services and supports they need to be safe and recover from violence. As one of three selected providers in Victoria, the initiative is in partnership with Women With Disabilities Victoria, DV Vic/DVRC and SAS Vic who will lead, provide guidelines and coordinate a community of practice.
