Have you been to The Lookout?

The Lookout is a comprehensive ‘one stop shop’ for all family violence information in Victoria. It is targeted towards Victorian family violence workers and women experiencing violence (as well as those who support them). The website is a joint initiative of Domestic Violence Resource Centre Victoria and Domestic Violence Victoria.


The Lookout acts as a centralised hub of information, resources and an online community for the sector. Information and resources include:

  • FAQs & fact sheets
  • Practice guidelines
  • Victoria’s family violence service system
  • Communities of Practice
  • Referral services
  • Resources, research & media
  • Online learning eCRAF (in the future)


Workers from DVVic member organisations are being invited to join The Lookout’s online Community of Practice, to share resources and discuss issues relating to their work. You can sign up online at The Lookout


If any organisation, forum or group wants a presentation on The Lookout, please get in touch with the communications officer at DVRC, Jen Kingwell, on 9486 9866 or at jkingwell AT dvrcv.org.au.
