The Victorian Systemic Review of Family Violence Deaths (VSRFVD) plays a critical role in efforts to prevent future family violence deaths in Victoria.
Since February this year, a number of organisations concerned with violence against women have urged the Attorney General, Robert Clark, to commit funding to sustain the VSRFVD.
We wrote to the Attorney General in February this year. Opposition MPs have supported our campaign for funding, through questions in Parliament and at the Public Accounts and Estimates Committee hearings in May.
Our efforts have so far failed to convince the Attorney General to commit required funding of $250,000 a year to allow the VSRFVD to continue.
