Our research

Violence against women and their children affects everybody. It impacts on the health, wellbeing and safety of a significant proportion of Australians throughout all states and territories and places an enormous burden on the nation’s economy across family and community services, health and hospitals, income-support and criminal justice systems.

ANROWS was established by the Commonwealth and all state and territory governments of Australia to produce, disseminate and assist in applying evidence for policy and practice addressing violence against women and their children.



To support the take-up of evidence, ANROWS offers a range of resources developed from research to support practitioners and policy-makers in delivering evidence-based interventions.


Integrated housing support for vulnerable families: How best can housing and services support be provided and improved for families affected by domestic and family violence?

The Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute (AHURI) is a national independent research network. Its mission is to deliver high quality research that influences policy development to improve the housing and urban environments of all Australians. This AHURI Inquiry will focus on the provision of integrated housing support for families, including those affected by domestic and family violence. It will provide significant new knowledge on the gendered nature of housing insecurity, housing pathways, and transition points at which culturally safe and holistic service responses are effective.
