Family and domestic violence

Family and domestic violence occurs when one person in the relationship uses violence and abuse to maintain power and control over the other person. This can include behaviour that is physically, sexually, emotionally, psychologically, and/or economically abusive, threatening, coercive or aimed at controlling or dominating the other person through fear.

To demonstrate our stance against family and domestic violence we have developed a number of strategies to reduce the impacts on staff and students. This page outlines the ways in which we educate, support and respond to disclosure of family and domestic violence at FedUni.
