Managing Director Bevan Warner has welcomed the appointment of Leanne Sinclair to the board of No To Violence incorporating the Men’s Referral Service (NTV/MRS).

NTV/MRS is the peak body for organisations and individuals working with men to end their violence and abuse towards family members in Victoria and New South Wales.

‘We are sure that Leanne’s expertise, which has been honed over many years working across government and community sectors as well as private practice, will be an immense benefit to this important service,’ Mr Warner said.

‘She is committed to implementing reform and innovation in how we deliver family violence services to benefit clients and others in the community who are affected by family violence.’

Ms Sinclair said she is excited to be working with NTV/MRS.

‘Responding to perpetrators is not just behaviour change programs – a suite of interventions is needed to help keep families safe,’ Ms Sinclair said.

‘This work will be about ensuring that perpetrators are kept in view, also that service responses are based on the latest evidence about their efficacy in managing risk, can achieve the right changes in attitude, and meet victims’ needs.’ 

As Associate Director Family Violence Response at Victoria Legal Aid, Leanne is leading our response to the recommendations of the Victorian Royal Commission into Family Violence.

This includes her providing advice in relation to strategy, policy, legal issues and priorities about the provision of legal services, as well as designing and implementing projects to improve services.

Her most recent focus at Victoria Legal Aid has been on promoting a better understanding of family violence risk factors and a consistent approach to identifying and managing risk by legal professionals.
