The Forum celebrates the work done by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in preventing and responding to family violence. It is an opportunity for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander workers to come together and learn from, share with and inspire each other.
The event highlights strategies and programs that could be used effectively by others and there will be discussions that relate to working with men, women and children who are either victims, or perpetrators, of domestic and family violence.
Date: Wednesday 16 to Thursday 17 May 2018
