First-Ever Family Violence Research Agenda Released

Victoria’s first-ever Family Violence Research Agenda 2021-2024 will build on what is already working and focus efforts on research activities that fill gaps in evidence base across prevention, early intervention and response.

The seven high-level research priorities are:

  • Primary prevention
  • Children and young people as victim survivors in their own right
  • Family violence as experienced by Aboriginal people and communities
  • Family violence as experienced by people from diverse communities
  • Sexual violence and harm
  • Adolescent family violence
  • Perpetrators and people who use violence.

The research will be conducted in partnership with universities, industry and agencies and through cross-government activities.
