Children were present at more than 25,000 family violence incidents in Victoria last year. Are you someone who works with kids aged between 13 and 17 who can share your thoughts on the way young people seek help online?

Domestic Violence Resource Centre Victoria needs your help to redesign a website to help young people identify family violence and develop ways to protect and care for themselves.

Please join us for one hour (catering provided) to give us your feedback, opinions and ideas on the website so we can reach more kids whose only support may be online.
