National Risk Assessment Principles for domestic and family violence

Friday, 27th July 2018

The National Risk Assessment Principles for domestic and family violence provide an overarching national understanding of risk and managing risk in the area of domestic and family violence (DFV). The principles do not replace existing state and territory frameworks or tools that are currently being used in practice. Instead, they provide a guide for jurisdictions in developing, revising or evaluating risk assessment frameworks, tools and resources for various cohorts (adult survivors, perpetrators, children, other family members).

The National Risk Assessment Principles include two accompanying resources;

  • the Companion resource: A summary of the evidence-base supporting the development and implementation of the National Risk Assessment Principles for domestic and family violence, and
  • a Quick reference guide for practitioners.
