The Journey to Ending Family and Domestic Violence

Bringing the pieces together across Primary Prevention – Early Intervention – Response and Recovery

12th to 13th September 2023
Workshop 14th September 2023

Optus Stadium

Stopping Family Violence and the Centre for Women’s Safety and Wellbeing are pleased to announce our 2023 Conference, The Journey to Ending Family, Domestic and Sexual Violence. We are delighted to be partnering with Optus Stadium to host the event on the 12th and 13th of September.

This conference will explore the relationships across primary prevention, early intervention, response, and recovery, and how each plays an important role in ending family, domestic, and sexual violence. With a focus on the ‘whole of systems approach’ across government and non-government services, join us in exploring key research and policy work, interventions and new initiatives across the sector that address: 


– Children and young peoples needs and voices as a priority 

– Recognising and responding to the perpetrator as the cause of harm 

– Adult and child victim-survivor led practices that are family, domestic & sexual violence informed, trauma informed, and strengths-based 

– Embedding high quality, evidence-based services that are family, domestic and sexual violence informed 

– Culturally safe practices and services that prioritise diversity and inclusive

Stopping Family Violence and the Centre for Women’s Safety and Wellbeing are facilitating a full-day masterclass on Thursday 14 September 2023

The interactive masterclass will provide a valuable opportunity to work through applying and implementing learnings from the conference. The day will include content on new and emerging frameworks, models of practice, research, and consultations such as the Code of Practice.

This masterclass is designed to support a wide range of practitioners working in the prevention, early intervention, response or recovery as well as intersecting sectors such as AOD, mental health, disability and/or homelessness.

Due to the interactive style of the masterclass, places are limited. Book your ticket now to avoid disappointment!

Join us on the journey in bringing the pieces together across prevention to recovery in family, domestic and sexual violence as we collectively work towards a better future free from violence.
