The LIV, informed by expert lawyers assisting vulnerable families, women and children escaping from family violence, have provided its submission to the Committee on Social Policy and Legal Affairs' inquiry into family, domestic and sexual violence. The LIV seeks to address issues with the current protection for vulnerable cohorts who experience family violence, providing recommendations to assist in the provision of frontline services; social and housing support; culturally informed services; and to achieve uniformity across jurisdictions in Australia.
