The Royal Commission into Family Violence handed over their 1900-page report to the Victorian Governor last week. The report highlighted a number of key systemic issues facing women experiencing family violence in Victoria. A significant number of recommendations made by the report reflect the submissions made by WSLV including financial abuse protections, restorative justice measures and increased safety in the courts system.
