The State Government is providing $1.2 million for family violence research to support evidence-based improvements and innovation in prevention of and response to family violence and sexual assault.

Research has identified seven priority areas where evidence gaps exist including children and young people as victims, family violence as experienced by people from diverse communities and sexual violence and harm.

Harnessing and embedding lived experience, from design to delivery, is a key feature of the second phase. Applicants are required to demonstrate how they will incorporate lived experience in their proposed research projects.

Further information and submission information is available at

Applications are open until Monday 3 April 2023.
