Academics at the Sydney School of Education and Social Work at the University of Sydney are conducting research to understand workers’ perceptions of the effectiveness of domestic and family violence policy.
You are invited to participate in this important research, that aims to provide an opportunity for people who work on the frontline of domestic and family violence services, or in advocacy organisations, to provide advice and comment on the current Australian government’s Third National Plan for the Elimination of Violence Against Women and their Children (2016-2019).
The primary aim of the project is to provide opportunities for frontline workers to provide insight into how policy can be more responsive to the real life experiences of women and children experiencing domestic violence. The results will be used to inform and hopefully improve future government policy in order to better address and prevent violence against women and children.
This research is being conducted by Associate Professors, Ruth Phillips, Sue Goodwin and Dr Susan Heward-Belle. This research is independent of any government body and no personal details, including details about your organisation will be identifiable in any publications that arise from the research.
