Northern Integrated Family Violence Services (NIFVS)
NIFVS is Melbourne's northern metropolitan sub-region’s response to the Integrated Family Violence reforms introduced by the Victorian Government in 2005.
In 2006, a consortium of Anglicare Victoria, Berry Street, Elizabeth Hoffman House, and Women’s Health In the North (WHIN), successfully bid to lead the implementation of the family violence reforms in the northern sub-region. Crossroads Youth and Family Services, local Women's Refuges and the Victorian Aboriginal Child Care Agency (VACCA) have since become part of the partnership. NIFVS also has significant working relationships with Victoria Police, the 9 community health services in the northern region, local Courts and Men's family violence services.
The NIFVS partnership was funded to lead and coordinate the changes to family violence services in the northern region. It aims to strengthen and resource the response of a variety of sectors to family violence.
