What we do
FVREE is the lead specialist family violence service in Melbourne’s Eastern Metropolitan Region. We work across the continuum of family violence including primary prevention, early intervention, response and recovery.
Our training, education and primary prevention programs reach throughout Melbourne’s eastern areas and some extend across Victoria and Australia.
Our specialist family violence response supports and services are mostly directed towards women, their children, pets and other animals, who are responding to any form of family violence. We provide support, information, case management, risk assessment, safety planning, community education, programs for pet safety and a strong network of referral pathways to other services. Our response supports and services are focused across seven Local Government Areas including Boroondara, Manningham, Whitehorse, Monash, Knox, Maroondah and Yarra Ranges.
FVREE is committed to assisting all people, regardless of ethnicity, race, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, age and ability within our community and can also provide access to other family violence services that are most suitable to the individual’s unique needs and goals.
