About

Join Stopping Family Violence and the Centre for Women’s Safety and Wellbeing at this important three day event in September 2021, as we bring together non-government community services and the government sector, along with the broader community to critically examine, discuss and explore policy and practice responses to better support the safety and wellbeing of children and young people experiencing family, domestic and sexual violence by Bringing Children and Young People into View.

Building on key themes from the 2019 Intersectionalities in Domestic Violence Conference, the 2021 event will provide an opportunity to focus our conversations on the impact of family, domestic and sexual violence on children and young people.

It is increasingly understood that children and young people can be affected by family, domestic and sexual violence in a range of ways which may be independent of their affected parent, and their needs can be different to those of adults. At times children and young people’s needs have been overlooked or conceived as secondary to those of adults when strategies and responses have been put in place to address family, domestic and sexual violence.

The purpose of the FDV Conference: Bringing Children and Young People into View is to strengthen our understanding of children and young people’s experiences and needs, and to consider the responses we can put in place to support their safety, health and wellbeing and improve their opportunities.

The Conference will feature presentations from key family, domestic and sexual violence practitioners, researchers, and policy makers across a range of disciplines including, but not limited to: 

Together, we will critically examine, discuss and explore how we can better respond, implement change and improve the lives of children and young people experiencing family, domestic and sexual violence.
