About the Family Violence Reform Implementation Monitor

Tim Cartwright APM is the Family Violence Reform Implementation Monitor. His 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 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.

Tim 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

Tim 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). 

He’s required to report the findings of his monitoring activities to Parliament “as at” 1 November each year. Tim plans 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.
