In partnership with Swinburne University, Safe+Equal are working on a project by Family Safety Victoria (FSV), in Phase 1 of its Family Violence Research Grants Program.

Safe+Equal’s project seeks to understand what works in ensuring workplace policy and practice align with Victoria’s Multi Agency Risk Assessment and Management (MARAM) framework. MARAM underpins the coordinated response to identifying, assessing and managing family violence risk across various sectors. The project will produce insights into how workplace capability in alignment and practice can be uplifted.

Safe+Equal are seeking approximately 100 practitioners from across our target sectors:

  • Housing and homelessness
  • Children and family services (including child protection)
  • Alcohol and other drug services
  • Mental health services
  • General practitioners (GPs)
  • Maternal and child health
  • Community health services (including rural and regional health)

You are invited to participate in a 90-minute focus group with other practitioners from across their sector. This will take place online. Participants will engage in a roundtable discussion to discuss their own experiences and insights in relation to family violence risk assessment and management. Your participation is completely voluntary.

If you are interested in taking part, please email [email protected] and your interest will be forwarded on to the Swinburne research team. They will be in touch to arrange your involvement in the project.
