Our Vision

A community free from family violence, where everyone feels safe.


Support for Indigenous clients

indigenousEDVOS is committed to providing culturally safe, supportive advocacy, with a holistic approach to services for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander victims of family violence.

If you identify as Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander, you have the options of working with our Aboriginal Liaison Case Workers. They provide family violence support and advocacy including risk assessments and safety planning and case management. They help you access a wide range of resources and assist you to make informed decisions. EDVOS has strong partnerships with Boorndawan Willam Aboriginal Healing Service (BWAHS) and the Victorian Aboriginal Child Care Agency (VACCA).

External services are able to refer clients to the Aboriginal Liaison Case Worker at EDVOS.


EDVOS is the specialist family violence service in Melbourne's Eastern Region.

We provide a broad range of integrated services to support women and children who are responding to family violence.

We prioritise the safety of women and children as a fundamental human right whilst working to ensure perpetrators are held accountable for using violence.
