Review: Family Violence Information Sharing Scheme Victoria – Have your say

Review: Family Violence Information Sharing Scheme Victoria – Have your say

The Gender and Family Violence team of researchers at Monash University have been contracted by Family Safety Victoria [read the CEO FSV support letter here] to conduct an independent Review of the Information Sharing Scheme and processes of implementation. The first stage of the review is to gather data on information sharing attitudes and practices prior to the implementation of the scheme. This stage of the research has several phases. 

Manager Interviews We will be conducting manager interviews, seeking input on current information sharing practices, current barriers and enablers and the processes of implementation of the ISS at an organisational level. If you are interested in participating, please contact Kate Burns [].

Survey We are conducting a survey to capture workers current attitudes and practises (formal and informal) in relation to information sharing. This information is important for you to have your say on information sharing, the implementation processes and how much time the new processes will take you and your organisation. We estimate that the survey will take approximately 20 minutes to complete. If you belong to any of the following workforces we encourage you to participate in the survey.

  • Child Protection
  • Child FIRST
  • Specialist women’s family violence service
  • Specialist men’s family violence service
  • Magistrates Court
  • Children’s Court
  • Refuges
  • Victoria Police
  • Corrections Victoria
  • Department of Justice and Regulation

You are welcome to participate in any of these phases. Your participation is vitally important and we encourage you to have a say.
