ANROWS’s work involves working with a wide range of stakeholders, including government policy-makers and practitioners, including those from the domestic, family and sexual violence, primary prevention and wider health, justice and human services sectors, researchers, peak bodies and others.
We are committed to ongoing engagement processes to inform our work and meet our stakeholders’ expectations. We will provide relevant and timely information to our stakeholders and the broader community on ANROWS’s operations and key activities.
Our work with stakeholders will be underpinned by the principles below.
- The principles set out in the Warawarni-gu Guma Statement will guide engagement with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities.
- The perspectives of victims/survivors of domestic, family and sexual violence, and their children, are vitally important to our work.
- Stakeholders, including funders, have knowledge and access to resources that can support the development and implementation of ANROWS research projects.
- ANROWS will exercise its independence in the publication and promotion of research findings.
National Plan Senior Officials
To support the take-up of evidence, ANROWS meets regularly with policy-developers at National Plan Senior Officials (NPSO) meetings, comprising Commonwealth, state and territory government officials with responsibility for violence against women portfolios. ANROWS convenes the National Plan Senior Officials meeting quarterly.
Practitioner Engagement Group (PEG)
The ANROWS Practitioner Engagement Group (PEG) is a network of practice leaders in the field of violence against women and their children. The PEG facilitates the translation and exchange of research evidence to practice.
ANROWS invites and accepts expressions of interest from, members from the specialist women’s services sector, as well as the broader community services sectors. All states and territories are represented on the PEG. The PEG meets quarterly, via teleconference.
