National Family & Domestic Violence Summit

Register Your Interest


Family and domestic violence reaches every level of Australian society, and so this year, we will do the same. The 2017 National Family and Domestic Violence Summit will put a new focus on:

  • Business: examining standout companies leading the way, and the importance of the workplace in violence prevention and support.
  • Technology: through key experts in the field we will look at the developing roll of technology, the inherent threats, how it can facilitate abuse, how to protect yourself, and how it can help.

This will happen alongside case-studies of innovative and successful family and domestic violence programs, analysis from experts and stakeholders, and reports from police and government organisations.

The National Family and Domestic Violence Summit will be the sector event: bringing together professions, advocates, survivors, scholars, executives, and citizens, crossing social boundaries and uniting with a single purpose; the prevention and end of family and domestic violence in Australia.
