Flexible Support Packages - update 2023

Flexible Support Packages (FSPs) that target high risk and promote safety were introduced by Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) to recognise family violence (FV) and the impacts on the health and wellbeing of women and children. 

The purposes of FSPs are for a rapid response to provide personalised, targeted assistance and to assist women and children living with violence in a crisis or post-crisis situation to achieve:

  • Safety and freedom from violence
  • Access to safe, stable housing
  • Financial stability
  • Family health and well-being
  • Economic, social and community participation
  • Independence

Practitioners can now make applications via an online portal.  If you are in Melbournes Inner and Outer East, please contact FVREE (formerly EDVOS) for instructions on how to register. FSP@fvree.org.au or (03) 9259 4200
