Victim Survivor Experience Mapping Report Launched

The NIFVS Partnership has undertaken Victim Survivor Experience Mapping as part of the NIFVS Family Violence Regional Integration Committee’s strategic plan to help centre the voices of victim survivors and to understand victim survivor journeys through the service system in the NMR.  

The Victim Survivor Experience Mapping report contains insights into victim survivor experiences of the service system and recommendations for a range of stakeholders responding to family violence, which will inform the Committee’s new strategic plan.

Led by the NIFVS team, the Victim Survivor Experience Mapping project brought together ‘System Listeners’ from VACCA, Berry Street, Good Samaritan Inn, Northern CASA, Northern Community Legal Centre, The Royal Children’s Hospital and Uniting, as well as survivor advocates from inTouch and Safe and Equal to form a Victim Survivor Experience Mapping Implementation Group. The ‘System Listeners’ conducted in-depth interviews with seven victim survivors.

This report will be of interest to practitioners and managers alike.

Victim Survivor quote:
One person can really make a difference, being able to navigate the wave, to not being able to cope.
