Bayside Peninsula Integrated Family Violence Partnership (BPIFVP)

Family Violence Regional Integration Committees (FVRIC) are local governance structures that provide strategic leadership to drive effective responses to family violence and support Victoria’s family violence reforms.  Read the Fact Sheet here.

The Bayside Peninsula Integrated Family Violence Partnership provides area-based leadership on Family Violence service integration and planning.  The Partnership has been mandated to bring together the many specialist and broader sector services whose work intersects with family violence response, early intervention and prevention, into a partnership arrangement and create a more integrated ‘one system’ approach to dealing with family violence.

The full Partnership meets bi-monthly and a smaller leadership group meets on the alternate months.  The work is determined by an annual Strategic work-plan that is implemented through a series of working groups.

The Partnership is managed by the PSA and their team – meet them here!

The BPIFVP Victim Survivor Statement

The Bayside Peninsula Integrated Family Violence Partnership acknowledges the strength and resilience of those who have experienced family and domestic violence, and the bravery of those who use their voices, experiences and advocacy to inform responses to family violence. We also honour those who are prevented from coming forward by the enormity of the trauma they suffered, and those whose voices can longer be heard.
