Building the evidence base on perpetrator program attrition and participant engagement strategies
The Victorian Government recently announced recipients of Family Violence Research Grants, which are designed to enhance safety outcomes for victim survivors.
Relationships Australia Victoria (RAV) is proud to collaborate on one of the funded projects led by Monash University, designed to enhance the evidence base in Victoria on perpetrator attrition and engagement strategies which will inform service delivery and best practice.
The project's other partner agencies are No to Violence, Bethany Community Support, Centre for Non-Violence, InTouch Multicultural Centre Against Family Violence, and Taskforce Community Agency.
The funding is designed to identify current gaps in and build a robust evidence base for best practice interventions, service delivery and innovation in family violence and sexual assault prevention and support services.
RAV is committed to undertaking targeted research in areas that impact our clients and influence the sector, and we focus on translating evidence-based practice into all our services.
‘This project fits with RAV's vision of improved outcomes for victim survivors and enhancing the evidence base of our services. We know there is a sector-wide gap in research/knowledge on perpetrator engagement, and this project will allow us to directly contribute to best practice and better understand effective engagement strategies.’ - Sandra Opoku, Manager of Evaluation and Social Impact
