In 2017, more than 11,000 people completed the first Family Violence Workforce Census and helped inform the development of the 10-Year industry plan for Family Violence Prevention and Response.
These responses helped the Victorian Government get a clearer picture of the workforce with data on:
- roles, salaries, qualifications and experience
- job motivation and satisfaction
- career pathways and training
- levels of confidence in identifying and responding to family violence
- what types of support would enable a more effective response to family violence.
This year, we need to hear from even more people.
This census is for everyone who plays a role in preventing, identifying and responding to family violence, even if it isn't the main focus or function of their role - like teachers, childcare workers, financial counselors and more.
