EXTERNALLY-FUNDED RESEARCH PROJECTS
Faith-based communities’ responses to family and domestic violence
The aim of this project is to consult with different faith-based communities in Australia to gain a better understanding of their capacity for prevention, early intervention and response to family and domestic violence. This will inform the development of community-driven initiatives to build the capacity of community and faith leaders to address FDV. The project will conduct and report on interviews/focus groups with i) staff/managers of key service providers/agencies working in this area; ii) faith leaders; and iii) community members from a range of different faiths/religions.
