Have your say about the Family Violence Information Sharing Scheme

Thursday, 12 September 2019 at 11:31 pm

The Monash Gender and Family Violence Prevention Centre is conducting an independent Review of the Family Violence Information Sharing Scheme (FVISS).

The Review will consider any adverse impacts or unintended consequences of the FVISS as well as make recommendations to improve its operation.

The findings of the Review will be tabled in Parliament in 2020 and may impact on family violence information sharing practice, policy and legislation.

Your participation is vitally important and we encourage you to have a say. 


Monash is conducting a survey of workers’ attitudes and practises in relation to family violence information sharing. This survey is important to demonstrate the impact the FVISS is having on your work, your organisation, keeping women and children safe and holding perpetrators to account. The survey will take approximately 20 minutes to complete.
