What we focus on
Leading sustainable change in early intervention to intimate partner violence is at the core of our work. This includes development of first line response tools for improved identification and management strategies for health practitioners. Development of technological tools for use by individuals to self-manage and access services, is also in our focus.
Who we focus on
With respect for the diversity of Australian families, our work centres on early intervention with children, young people and their parents, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, and men who use violence in their relationships. In all our activities we put women and children’s safety first.
How we do it
We create new knowledge to build capability for sustainable change in policy and practice. This is achieved through high quality research, collaborative partnership, workforce development, knowledge translation and exchange and research implementation.
