More Family Violence support at Nexus

The Victorian Government is trialling new ways to provide intensive therapeutic support to women, children and their families experiencing family violence. The Nexus Family Violence Therapeutic Interventions Project (FV-TIP) is one of just 26 funded projects (until June 2018) to be delivered across Victoria – including four that specifically target Aboriginal families.

The new pilot projects support recommendations from the Royal Commission into Family Violence to improve accessibility, transform the way the system responds to family violence, and support family violence services to strengthen and enhance its therapeutic response to adults and children impacted by family violence.

The Nexus FV-TIP will provide new ways of intensive therapeutic support to women, children and their families who have experienced family violence within the Mitchell & Murrindindi Shires.

Our service is confidential and respectful of your needs, circumstances and culture.

Nexus FV-TIP can provide the following therapeutic interventions:
– Allied Health: (Speech Pathology and Occupational Therapy) for children with developmental delays,
– Theraplay®: a trauma-informed attachment-based therapy for children and women,
– Nexus Horses Assisting You (HAY): Equine Therapy Program for children and women.
