Multi-Agency Risk Assessment and Management Framework (MARAM)

Royal Commission into Family Violence

The Royal Commission was established in 2015 after a number of family violence-related deaths in Victoria - most notably the death of Luke Batty.

The role of the Commission was to find ways to:

  • prevent family violence
  • improve support for victim survivors
  • hold perpetrators to account

The Commission included 25 days of public hearings. Community conversations were held with over 800 Victorians and nearly 1,000 written submissions were received.

Areas investigated:

  • criminal law, corrections and courts
  • role of support services
  • health system and alcohol and drug treatment services, as well as those of refuges, housing and education
  • tools available to police
