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 was to gather data on information sharing attitudes and practices prior to the implementation of the scheme. More information about the first stage of the review can be found here


Seeking the stories of women who have been affected by family violence for the Review

Through service providers, we are seeking women who might be willing to share their experiences about information sharing practices within the Victorian family violence system. We want to hear from women about their views and hopes around making the system safer. We have attached an explanatory statement about the project and what it means to participate. Women’s details will be kept totally confidential: they are able to participate as part of a focus group or by individual interview, which can also be conducted by phone. To recognise women’s time and resources in participating, they will be offered a $50 voucher.
