Family Violence and IPV Forum Braiding Knowledge: Hosted by w/respect and DVVic

Braiding Knowledge is an interactive day-long forum for the family violence and intersecting sectors, specialist LGBTIQ services and community groups to build on existing knowledge for identification and response to LGBTIQ family and intimate partner violence. w/respect – nurturing respectful relationships, is a partnership lead by drummond street, queerspace with Transgender Victoria, Thorne Harbour Health and Switchboard. In collaboration with DVVic, we are holding an inaugural forum of our new LGBTIQ Integrated Family Violence Service at the Convention Exhibition Centre in Melbourne. This interactive day is especially for managers, practitioners, policy analysts and community groups working in the family violence and intersecting sectors . Braiding Knowledge aims to build on existing knowledge in identifying and responding to LGBTIQ intimate partner and family violence, and to introduce the new service, w/respect, to the sector. Please register to secure your place and to join the afternoon discussions in different breakout sessions.  Each person who attends needs a ticket. In recognition of the greater financial burden on some individuals and organisations of purchasing a ticket, we are providing a FREE ticketed option for LGBTIQ community organisations (no paid staff), for Aboriginal community organisations, for rural and regional attendees (ie150km from Melbourne), or others to whom this applies. To access the free ticketed option, please contact us at for information about the process.
