FVREE - Free from Family Violence www.fvree.org.au
FVREE (previously EDVOS, Eastern Domestic Violence Service) is the lead specialist family violence service in Melbourne’s Eastern Metropolitan Region. We work across the continuum of family violence including primary prevention, early intervention, response and recovery.
Our response support services, education, training and primary prevention programs are available to more than 1.1 million people across the municipalities of:
- Yarra Ranges
We provide a broad range of integrated response support services for women, children and their pets who are responding to family violence. Our training, education and primary prevention programs reach throughout Melbourne’s eastern areas and some extend across Victoria and Australia.
We prioritise the safety of women and children as a fundamental human right, while working to ensure perpetrators are held accountable for using violence. We support women to make informed choices through programs and services that are individual, sensitive and evidence-based.
Our highly trained staff provide support, information, case management, safety planning, community education, programs for pet safety and a strong network of referral pathways to other services
