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.

Children, young people
and parenting

Domestic, family and sexual violence have a range of impacts on children, including developmental, health, social and educational impacts.

According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics’ Personal Safety Survey 2016 (ABS, 2017), 65 percent of women who had children in their care when they experienced violence by a partner reported that the children had seen or heard the violence.

ANROWS offers a range of resources, papers, reports and research projects relating to the experiences and impacts of violence on children and young people, along with strategies for adolescents with violent behaviours.
