About us

Domestic Violence Resource Centre Victoria (DVRCV) is a statewide organisation working to build the capability of professionals, organisations and systems to prevent and respond to violence against women. Everything we do is driven by our vision to create a world where women and their children are thriving, respected and free from violence.

We do this by:

  • Designing and delivering high quality, practice and evidence informed education, training and development for professionals and organisations across a range of sectors  
  • Delivering a range of capability building activities across the state including communities of practice, networks, events and forums
  • Developing information, tools, resources and guidance to support professionals in their day to day work preventing or responding to violence against women
  • Informing public discussion about ending violence against women to build community awareness and change attitudes
  • Setting standards to guide the design and delivery of consistent and practice informed education, training and professional development across Victoria
  • Advocating to ensure that specialisation, an intersectional feminist approach and evidence is at the heart of system reform
