About the Family Violence Reform Implementation Monitor

Jan Shuard PSM the Family Violence Reform Implementation Monitor. Her role is to hold the Victorian Government and its agencies to account for implementing the statewide family violence reform.

The Family Violence Reform Implementation Monitor (FVRIM) position was created in 2016, after the Royal Commission released its report. Once the legislation came into force it became an independent statutory office in 2017, reporting directly to Parliament.  

As a result of the Royal Commission report, the Victorian Government and its agencies are working to build a more effective system. One that protects victim survivors, holds perpetrators to account, and prevents family violence.

The FVRIM independently monitors and reviews the Victorian Government and its agencies in delivering the state-wide family violence reform by:

  • highlighting and sharing better practice
  • alerting decision makers to risks as they arise

The Monitor reports annually to Parliament and the community on the progress and effectiveness of the reforms against the Victorian Government’s Family Violence Implementation Plan (referred to by the Royal Commission as the State-wide Action Plan). 

The report outlines the findings of her monitoring activities “as at” 1 November each year, with a commitment to table the report to Parliament early in the following calendar year. 

Legislation requires that a report is produced by the Monitor each year, from 2017 to 2020.
