Did you know that children are often overlooked as victims of domestic and family violence (DFV)?

Director of Centrecare & founder of VCI, Adj. Prof. Tony Pietropiccolo AM recently presented a powerful paper at the National Family Safety Summit 2023.

He highlights the importance of recognising and supporting these young survivors as children in DFV have not received enough attention and if Australia is to end domestic and family violence then it will have to bring a response to children’s needs to the forefront of its considerations.
