Change the story – a framework for the primary prevention of violence against women and their children in Australia

Change the story brings together international research, and nationwide experience, on what drives violence against women and their children and what works to prevent it. It establishes a shared understanding of the evidence and principles of effective prevention, and presents a way forward for a coordinated national approach.

Primary prevention of family violence against people from LGBTI communities

Our Watch in partnership with Dr Philomena Horsley and GLHV@ARCSHS, La Trobe University, were commissioned by the Victorian Government to undertake a comprehensive literature review exploring family violence against people from lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and gender diverse and intersex (LGBTI) communities. The review specifically focused on the prevention of family violence against LGBTI people in response to needs identified by the Royal Commission into Family Violence, and recognising the significant gaps in research and knowledge with respect to this issue.

For more information, see Primary prevention of family violence against people from LGBTI communities on the Our watch website.
