The FVDRC believes that the current approach to reviewing and reforming the justice system is problematic in its treatment of family violence. Because different aspects of the justice system are reviewed and reformed in isolation from each other, family violence issues are dealt with in a fragmented fashion. This approach is not the best way to achieve safety for victims of abuse. What is needed instead is an integrated and timely approach across all sectors, including justice, which prioritises the safety and provision of support to victims of domestic violence and child abuse.
