Lived experience showcase

A collection of best practice, achievements, new ideas and emerging trends from engaging people with lived experience of family violence.

28 Mar 2023

This collection showcases examples of lived experience expertise and guidance for engaging people with lived experience of family violence and sexual assault in the development of policy and services.

It is aimed at promoting best practice and sharing lessons across existing lived experience initiatives.

The showcase helps us celebrate and build on the unique role lived experience expertise has played in Victoria’s family violence reforms.

Examples in the showcase were originally collected as part of the 2022 lived experience forum called 'More than our story: action, wisdom and change' that featured conversations with advocates such as Rosie Batty, Grace Tame and Amani Haydar.

Family Safety Victoria will continue to update the showcase to support the Family Violence Lived Experience Strategy.
