PHN to trial pilot providing support for victim-survivors of Domestic, Family and Sexual Violence

The HNECC PHN is one of six PHNs nationally that have been selected to trial an innovative Domestic Family and Sexual Violence (DFSV) pilot to ensure victim-survivors are well supported in all aspects of their daily lives through trauma-informed, culturally safe, and accessible services that support long-term recovery and healing.

The pilot will foster a whole of family approach, supporting adults and children. It will recognise children and young people as victim-survivors of violence in their own right, establishing appropriate supports and services that will meet their safety and recovery needs. Adults without children are eligible for support.

The PHN is hosting Community Consultation and Co-Planning Workshops in the two trial sites, Moree and the Central Coast, to introduce the Department of Health and Aged Care’s Model of Care, and seek community feedback, advice and expertise.

The Moree Workshop will be held on 7 February and the Central Coast Workshop on 9 February.

Information from the workshops will inform how the model of care will be localised and implemented to ensure it is designed to best meet the needs of victim-survivors of DFSV in Moree and the Central Coast.
