Research on family violence services underway: Family and sexual violence work update

June 29, 2017 at 4:57 PM

*From the New Zealand Family Violence Clearinghouse*

The latest update from the Government's Family and Sexual Violence Work Programme announced a research project to be undertaken on family violence services.

The research is focusing on family violence service needs. The email update stated the research team "will examine the range of services needed by family and whānau affected by family violence, and identify and asses options for people to get timely access to this help and support."

The Ministry of Social Development (MSD) has commissioned Allen + Clarke consulting firm to conduct the research, with support from researchers Devon Polaschek, Sue Carswell, Hector Kaiwai and Louise Dixon.

The research team will be interviewing providers from family violence specialist and general services (such as mental health and alcohol and other drugs). They will also interview some victims and perpetrators.

If your agency is interested in taking part in the research, you can email with a brief description about your services, where you are located, and who your clients are. This will be shared with the researchers who may consider interviewing your service - they are not able to speak to all services.

For questions about this work or to receive the work programme email updates, contact

For more information about the work programme see the pages on the MSD website and the Ministry of Justice website.
