Presenters: Daryl Higgins, Jess Hill, Anne Hollonds and Lisa O’Neill. Facilitated by Rae Kaspiew

 

Problems arising from Australia’s fragmented system for responding to families affected by family violence and child abuse have attracted significant focus in the last decade. Split responsibilities between the states and territories having responsibility for child protection and family violence and the Commonwealth holding responsibility for family law increase these difficulties. The well-recognised burden of navigating these different systems is shouldered by vulnerable families.

This webinar reunites the panellists from AIFS Conference 2022 event ‘Intersecting systems and the needs of families: Family law, child protection and domestic violence’. The panellists will discuss this topic with a focus on implications for practitioners working in areas related to family and domestic violence, family law and child protection.

The recorded panel event includes discussion on:
• Issues and developments in relation to the intersecting systems that address the needs of children affected by family violence and child abuse – namely child protection, family violence and family law
• Policy developments in the national child protection and family violence frameworks, the Federal Circuit and Family Court of Australia’s Lighthouse Project and child protection responses to children exposed to family and domestic violence
• Practice insights for practitioners supporting children and families to navigate these intersecting systems.
It is expected that the broader systems discussion may be useful for those in leadership and management roles as well.

We encourage you to test your system before the webinar and read our Frequently Asked Questions. A recording of this presentation will be made available shortly after the broadcast.
