Family violence workforce census extended

4 February 2020
Victoria’s Workforce Census for workers who sometimes come into contact with people affected by family violence has been extended until Friday 28 February to encourage more people to have their say. 

The census is for workers in Victoria’s health, community services, justice, education and training sectors who sometimes come into contact with victims of family violence or perpetrators. 

To be counted and continue to make a difference you can take part in the Census of Workforces, which takes no more than 15-20 minutes to complete.

The census is an opportunity for workers to share their experiences and views and highlight the issues that they face in the course of their work that are related to family violence. 

The findings aim to build a deeper understanding about the different workforces that intersect with family violence to ensure that you are supported to respond to women and children experiencing family violence and that there is a no wrong door for victims who need help or advice.   

The census is anonymous, with data de-identified.   

There is a separate census for family violence and primary prevention workers and you will be asked some initial questions to make sure you are led to the most relevant survey for you.
