A NEW trial to better support the community’s youngest family violence survivors will be rolled out in Mildura by the end of the year.

A demonstration project by ­Mallee Sexual Assault Unit and Mallee Domestic Violence Service, in partnership with Local Logic Place and Mallee Family Care, was this week named as one of 26 to receive State Government funding to respond to family violence.
