Information Sharing Entity List

Information Sharing Entity List user guide.

What is the ISE List?

The Information Sharing Entity (ISE) List is a searchable database that can be used to identify organisations and services prescribed under the Child Information Sharing Scheme (CISS) and the Family Violence Information Sharing Scheme (FVISS).

Where can I access the ISE List? 

ISEs can access the ISE List via the Whole of Victorian Government Information Sharing and MARAM website via the Who can share information under the information sharing and MARAM reforms webpage. Otherwise, you can go directly to the ISE list by clicking the button below.

Access the ISE list

ISEs do not have to request access in advance to view the ISE List.

What are the search fields?

When you navigate to the ISE List, you will find search fields. It is not necessary to complete every field in order to search for an ISE. Search fields include:

Organisation name

‘Organisation Name’ is an open text field. It can be used to type the name of the organisation or service you wish to search for. If you know the name of the organisation, it is recommended that you type their name into the ‘Organisation Name’ field and click search.

Funded for

‘Funded For’ is a drop down box. It can be used to select a type of service that can share information under CISS and FVISS. Types of services include Alcohol and Other Drug Services, Child FIRST Services and Specialist Family Violence Services.

FVISS/CISS

‘FVISS/CISS’ is a drop down box. It can be used to select the scheme the organisation is prescribed under. Options include: ‘FVISS’, ‘CISS’ or ‘Both’ schemes.

Risk Assessment Entity

‘Risk Assessment Entity’ is a radio button. It can be used to see if an organisation is prescribed as a Risk Assessment Entity (RAE) under FVISS. RAEs include all specialist family violence services, Victoria Police and Child Protection.

Statewide Service

‘Statewide Service’ is a radio button. It can be used to see if an ISE is a local or statewide service. Note this is not a mandatory field so results will sometimes appear blank.

How do I use the ISE List? 

How to search for an organisation or service 

To search for an organisation or service, type their name into the ‘Organisation Name’ field and click search.

For example, to confirm if The Orange Door is an ISE, just type The Orange Door into the ‘Organisation Name’ field and click search.

Note: You do not have to complete every field in order to search.

If the organisation you searched for is an ISE, then one or more entries will appear.

How to search using other search fields

‘Funded For’, ‘FVISS/CISS’, ‘RAE’ and ‘Statewide Service’ are other search parameters that can be used to identify an ISE.

For example, if you are trying to identify an ISE that is prescribed under FVISS and delivers Specialist Family Violence Services, you can use the ‘Funded For’ drop down to select ‘Specialist Family Violence Services’ and the ‘FVISS/CISS’ drop down to select FVISS.

Note: It is not necessary to complete every field in order to search for an ISE. ‘Organisation Name’ can be left blank if you wish to search for an unknown ISE.

Once you click search, you can tab through to find your search results.

If you are trying to identify all organisations that are prescribed as a RAE under FVISS, you can use the ‘RAE’ radio button to select ‘yes’.

Once you click search, you can tab through to find your search results.

Contact details

In addition to an organisation's name and the schemes it is prescribed under, some search results will also show an organisation's email and telephone number.

Note: ‘Email’ and ‘Telephone’ are not mandatory fields and will sometimes appear blank.

If your organisation is missing from the ISE List or you want to update your details, please email CISandFVIS@education.vic.gov.au and your request will be actioned in 48 business hours.

How often is the ISE List updated? 

The ISE List is updated at regular intervals but is not a live list.

If an organisation is not listed that should be, or if you are uncertain about an ISE’s status:
