No honey pot: Jennings tells VHA forum
Posted 04 April 2017
There’s no magic, one-size-fits-all solution to family violence, Special Minister of State Gavin Jennings told a VHA forum.
“I have never believed in the honey pot phenomenon of one access point, one solution to help peoples lives.
“There’s no more important issue for us to be grappling with than family violence,” Minister Jennings told the VHA Family Violence Forum: Understanding health sector’s life changing role.
It was essential people experiencing family violence find the right pathway of care, he said.
“We need a family violence service system that makes sense that doesn’t have any gaps in it. The State Government is reviewing the risk assessment framework, which will be underpinned by legislative reform.
“An important change will be empowering victims, women and children, and making sure the perpetrator is tracked and held accountable.”
