JOIN THE WALK AGAINST FAMILY VIOLENCE

Join people across Victoria as we raise awareness of domestic and family violence at the 12th Annual Walk Against Family Violence on November 25.

Walk or wheelchair around the block, go for a walk with a friend, or find a group and participate in a planned local event in your area – you choose.

By wearing something orange – a facemask, hat or t-shirt – and joining others using #WAFV2020 on social media, you can show your support for victim-survivors and help send a message across Victoria that family and domestic violence is never okay.

Register for the walk

Understanding family violence

Types of abuse

Types of abuse

Family violence is not always physical or sexual abuse. It can include controlling and coercive behaviours such as making threats, monitoring you, limiting your contact with other people, stopping you from accessing care, or controlling the way you get and spend money.
