MARAM: Take the survey

Since 2018, homelessness services have been required to align their policies and practices to the Family Violence Multi-Agency Risk Assessment and Risk Management Framework (MARAM) and the Information Sharing Schemes. MARAM prescribes how we respond to incidents of family violence for victim-survivors, children and perpetrators.

To support this alignment, CHP has developed a survey to gain a better understanding of the sector’s current needs. Your feedback will help us understand the progress of implementation and identify opportunities for CHP to support the sector’s alignment with MARAM.  The survey takes approximately 15 minutes to complete.

Training: Creating healing systems

In the same way individuals can be profoundly impacted by the experience of trauma, organisations and systems also become overwhelmed. And in the same way that individuals can heal and recover from their experiences, whole systems can become safe and calm.
On 8 July, CHP is offering a full day workshop that will make a crucial difference for you and your organisation, helping you understand trauma’s impact on systems and learn how to create healing environments. It’s a unique opportunity to enhance organisational well-being and improve client outcomes.

Victorian 2024-25 Budget snapshot

The Victorian Government released its 2024/25 State Budget on 7 May. In a tight budget across the board, $197 million has been allocated to housing and homelessness over 4 years. It provides critical funding for some frontline services, but much more is needed to respond to the state’s once-in-a-generation homelessness crisis.
