Family Violence & Children's Committee

The initial impetus for the formation of the Family Violence & Children's Committee was the lack of a centralised database which the profession could source in cases of urgent need for those clients who were victims of family violence. In addition, the impact of family violence on children and the conduct of those cases through the Children’s Court was becoming increasingly problematic for practitioners. The committee is working on a range of resources in this area, which will be available to members.
