WESTERN AUSTRALIA INTERAGENCY COLLABORATION
Family and Domestic Violence Response Team
The Family and Domestic Violence Response Team (FDVRT) is a partnership between the Department for Child Protection and Family Support, WA Police and community sector family and domestic violence services.
The FDVRT aims to improve the safety of child and adult victims of family and domestic violence through a collaborative approach that focuses on timely and early intervention following a police call out to a domestic violence incident. There is a FDVRT in every child protection district and in most regions the team is co-located.
Multi-agency Case Management
Multi-agency case management (MACM) provides a platform for agencies to share information, develop comprehensive risk assessments, plan strategies to mitigate risks and work towards child and adult victim safety and perpetrator accountability. MACM is also important for creating transparency and accountability between agencies about their roles and responsibilities in responding to family and domestic violence.

The Salvation Army provides services in Western Australia to support women facing family and domestic violence.
The Graceville Centre has three services offering help for women who need assistance following family and domestic violence incidents or are homeless due to such incidents.
Everyone deserves to feel safe and free from harm. If you’re experiencing violence in your home, feel threatened, or are at risk in any physical or emotional way, reach out for a private and confidential conversation.
