New workforce census

23 December 2019
workforce census
Workers in Victoria’s health, community services, justice, education and training sectors who sometimes come into contact with people affected by family violence are being encouraged to complete a new workforce census. 

The census is an opportunity for workers who sometimes come into direct contact with victims or perpetrators to highlight the issues faced 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 workers 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 can be filled in here: The census will take no more than 15-20 minutes to complete and is anonymous, with data de-identified.  There is a separate census for family violence and primary prevention workers and respondents will be asked some initial questions to make sure they are led to the most relevant survey. In the survey, your role will be referred to as ‘your role in the broader workforce that intersects with family violence.’
