Welcome to the website of the National Family Violence Prevention Legal Services. 

The National Family Violence Prevention Legal Services Forum was formally established in May 2012. It is comprised of fourteen member organisations across Australia who are service providers under the Family Violence Prevention Legal Services (FVPLSs) Program. FVPLSs provide specialist, culturally safe legal services and supports to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander victim/survivors of family violence across Australia.

Family violence against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women is a national crisis.

Violence against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women devastates communities and destroys families. In comparison with other women, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women are 34 times more likely to be hospitalised from family violence and 10 times more likely to be killed as a result of violent assault. 

You can raise awareness of this national crisis and show your support for the work of the National Forum by sharing these infographics on social media. (Right-click on the image and save to your computer, then upload to your preferred social media platform.)

Ochre Ribbon Campaign 

The Ochre Ribbon Campaign is an initiative launched by the National Family Violence Prevention Legal Services Forum and its member organisations across Australia. The Ochre Ribbon Campaign raises awareness of the devastating impacts of family violence in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and calls for action to end the violence against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people – especially our women and children. 

You can support the Ochre Ribbon Campaign and show your solidarity by sharing the electronic Ochre Ribbon below on social media. You can also make it your profile/cover photo on facebook or your profile photo on twitter.
