The Children’s Voices for Change project is seeking children and young people aged 10 to 25, who have lived experience of family violence, to take part in an online activity.

This project is being led by Southern Cross University, in partnership with Safe and Equal and the Centre for Excellence in Child & Family Welfare.

It is funded as part of the Victorian Government’s Family Violence Research Agenda 2021-2024.

The research project seeks to understand what constitutes effective supports for children and young people as victim-survivors of family violence in their own right.

This stage of the project involves research with children and young people with lived experience of family violence, through an anonymous, interactive online activity. This phase has been approved by Southern Cross University’s Human Research Ethics Committee (approval no. 2023/115).

The project is recruiting children and young people who:

  • are 10 to 25 years old; and
  • have experience accessing family violence support services in Victoria when they were up to 13 years old; and
  • have an established relationship with a service or network; and
  • are not currently in distress or crisis.

If you can help with identifying potential participants who meet these criteria, please share this opportunity. The online activity will be open until Friday 18 August.
