Stopping Family Violence is a new not for profit established in Western Australia to drive forward the agenda of perpetrator response and grow the evidence base that supports this work.
The purpose of the organisation is to work in partnership with women and children’s services, policy makers and researchers to provide leadership in the area of family and domestic violence perpetrator response. These collaborations will facilitate activities such as advocacy, workforce development, research and program development.
Stopping Family Violence has been created as an independent body in WA to work with program providers, government, victim and children’s services, and research and training bodies around perpetrator response and intervention.
In order to remain independent SFV will not engage in service delivery that puts it in direct competition with members of the network. Instead SFV will focus its efforts on developing the skills, knowledge and evidence base of the sector through research and pilot activities.
