Abstract

A Roundtable Event titled Understanding domestic violence and religion was held on 28 October 2022 to explore the
question of how faith-based organisations could be part of the solution to domestic violence in Australia. The Victorian
Royal Commission into Family Violence (State of Victoria 2016) recommended that faith leaders and communities
establish processes for examining responses and recovery to domestic violence. Many FBOs have embarked on this
recommendation to raise awareness in congregations, schools, and other institutions of the church, as well as training,
identifying and developing resources, and searching for best practice to support and respond to both victims-survivors
and perpetrators of domestic violence.
The Roundtable Event was created to bring interested stakeholders together to talk; share ideas about domestic violence
policies, services, and other relevant resources; and enable the possibilities of further work with faith communities.
Eighty-one people attended.
