A key recommendation of the Royal Commission into Family Violence was to establish a network of Support and Safety Hubs across Victoria. This was to provide a new way of working with women, men, children and young people experiencing family violence and families who need assistance with the care and wellbeing of children. This enables access to services in a safe and supportive environment.
And so, the Orange Door Initiative was implemented across Victoria as the intake point for Family Violence and Child Wellbeing issues. The safety of victim survivors is the Orange Door's first priority. The Orange Door will also help to maintain a focus on perpetrators, so the risk they pose can be assessed and they are held to account for their behaviour.
Brophy Family and Youth Services is a quality Child Safe accredited, not-for-profit organisation. We provide a wide range of family, youth and children services across Southwest Victoria, incorporating Integrated Family Services and other programs. We work closely with the Orange Door to build the capacity of vulnerable families and individuals to enable them to self-manage and be the best they can be through referrals to many of our program areas.
