Workers in Victoria’s health, community services, justice, education and training sectors who sometimes come into contact with people affected by family violence are being encouraged to complete a new workforce census.
The census is an opportunity for workers who sometimes come into direct contact with victims or perpetrators to highlight the issues that your face in the course of your work that are related to family violence.
The findings aim to build a deeper understanding about the different workforces that intersect with family violence to ensure that you are supported to respond to women and children experiencing family violence and that there is a no wrong door for victims who need help or advice.
The census will take no more than 15-20 minutes to complete and is anonymous, with data deidentified.
There is a separate census for family violence and primary prevention workers and you will be asked some initial questions to make sure you are led to the most relevant survey for you.
In the survey, your role will be referred to as ‘your role in the broader workforce that intersects with family violence’.
