A centralised hub that links people experiencing family violence with support services is expected to open in Bendigo in the coming months.
The Orange Door is a Victorian government initiative born from a key recommendation of the Royal Commission into Family Violence.
It is a hub that coordinates support from family violence, child and family, Aboriginal, and men's services, along with emergency and crisis assistance.
In Bendigo, the Centre for Non-Violence, Bendigo and District Aboriginal Co-operative, Njernda Aboriginal Corporation, and Anglicare will partner with the Orange Door.
"We made a promise to roll out the Orange Door Network across the state so that every family can get the support they need to be safe, no matter where they live - that work continues," a Victorian government spokesperson said.
"We're pleased to be on the verge of opening three new Orange Door sites in the coming months - and to locals in the Greater Bendigo region, we say: watch this space."
This week, Minister for the Prevention of Family Violence Gabrielle Williams said the Bendigo-based hub was expected to open before the end of the year.
The Orange Door will be located in central Bendigo and service the Loddon region.
Branding is already up on the building housing the hub.
Orange Doors are already operating in Barwon, inner Gippsland, north east Melbourne, Bayside Peninsula and Mallee.
An Auditor-General's report released in May said the hubs already in operation were "not yet realising their full potential to improve the lives of people affected by family violence and families needing support with their children".
"This is because their service coordination is not yet consistently effective or efficient," the report said.
It was found Family Safety Victoria, the agency responsible for the Orange Doors, was addressing these issues and making changes to improve future hubs, although concerns remained hubs would still not be fully prepared to support people.
The state government did not answer a Bendigo Advertiser question on how it would ensure the Bendigo hub would not experience these problems.
