About the Program

A key recommendation of the Royal Commission and the Roadmap for Reform was to establish a network of Support and Safety Hubs (‘Hubs’) across Victoria to provide a new way for women, children and young people experiencing family violence, and families who need assistance with the care and wellbeing of children to access the services they need to be safe and supported. These Hubs are known as The Orange Door.  

The Orange Doors brings together different workforces and practices to create an integrated Orange Door team and a consolidated intake point in each Orange Door area to create a new way of support for:

  • Women, children, young people and families experiencing family violence.
  • Perpetrators of family violence.
  • Families in need of support with the care, development and well-being of infants, children and young people.

The Orange Door teams includes a mix of staff employed by FSV and staff employed by CSOs, Aboriginal services and Department of Families, Fairness and Housing (DFFH).
