Do you respond to family violence in your role? Have your say in the census

Family Violence Workforce Census

If you work in a role which responds to cases of family violence, you work with specialists who do, or you’re involved in primary prevention of family violence, then this is your chance to have a say.

The Census of Workforces that Intersect with Family Violence is being conducted on behalf of Family Safety Victoria by ORIMA Research, an independent market and social research company.

The census is an opportunity for you to highlight key issues related to family violence that you face in the course of your work.

The Royal Commission into Family Violence highlighted the lack of detailed knowledge and essential workforce data about family violence in Victoria. The Victorian Government has committed to addressing this gap, which includes undertaking a workforce census every two years.

Why should I participate in the census?

The findings will improve our understanding of the breadth and nature of workforces that come into contact with family violence, identify potential gaps in knowledge, support and capability, as well as build on what we know in order to maintain our commitment to keep improving family violence prevention and response in Victoria.

What else do I need to know?

The census survey can be completed online over one or multiple sessions. It is estimated to take just 15 to 25 minutes for you to complete.

Your responses to the survey are private and confidential.
