The Royal Commission into Family Violence has made its finding available to the public in an extensive series of documents, including recommendations of programs and improvements to be made to existing systems. Of particular note to Communities of Hope and Compassion is vol V, section 29 of the Report, titled 'Faith Communities'.
Recommendations 163, 164, and 165 are relevant to faith communities and refer to processes and resources that can and will be developed and/or improved for use in faith communities.
CCVT encourages all affiliated communities to continue to explore ways in which our Communities of Hope and Compassion can promote gender equality, safe families, and offer protection and support to victims of family violence.
The findings of the Royal Commission can be accessed below in their entirety.
