This report focuses on innovative models intended to reduce family violence in remote communities. It takes its lead from the perspective of Aboriginal people who work within the family violence field or have had experience of family violence. The report is based on qualitative research in three sites in Australia: Fitzroy Crossing (Western Australia), Darwin (Northern Territory), and Cherbourg (Queensland). It supports the establishment of a network of context-based Indigenous family violence strategies owned and managed by Indigenous people and linked to initiatives around alcohol reduction, inter-generational trauma, social and emotional wellbeing, and alternatives to custody.
