The Victorian Government is developing a 10 year Industry Plan as a key recommendation of the Royal Commission into Family Violence.
But for this to be possible, we need a clearer picture of Victoria’s family violence workforce.
That’s why the family violence workforce census has been developed.
The census is designed for everyone who plays a role in preventing and responding to family violence in Victoria.
Are you a financial counsellor, psychologist, teacher or support worker? Or perhaps you work in housing, legal services, justice and corrections, education, migrant services or mental health?
Whatever you do, there’s a high chance it touches on family violence (and you may not even realise it) – so we need to hear from you.
Click here to learn more and complete online. Participation is voluntary and you won’t be asked for your name. The census is open from 10 April to 5 May.
Together we can make a difference.
