Family violence workforce census

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, to deliver continuous workforce planning and development improvements for people who come into contact with family violence, in the course of their work.

The census collects data across a wide range of workforces including:

  • specialist family violence
  • primary prevention
  • services across the community services, health, justice, and education and training sector.

The census is led by Family Safety Victoria and developed in consultation with peak bodies and member agencies in the family violence sector.
