A further $600,000 has been allocated by the state government to organisations that help Indigenous Australians who are victims of family violence.

The amount is on top of $1.3 million for initiatives focusing on immediate responses to family violence, targeted education and awareness campaigns, and programs to increase understanding of Aboriginal family violence patterns.

The funding forms part of the $81.3 million committed by the state government to address family violence in the 2015 Victorian Budget.

The funding allocations were shaped by input from the Indigenous community on what needs to be done to address Aboriginal family violence.

The state government has asked the Royal Commission into Family Violence to provide advice on the needs and experiences of Indigenous Australians affected by family violence.
