Policy advice on the development of the national workforce agenda for the Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Workforce 2013

Client:  Department of Families, Housing, Community Services & Indigenous Affairs (FAHCSIA), Safety Taskforce Branch

This project develops a national workforce agenda for the domestic violence and sexual assault workforce, addressing four key issues:

  1. identifying workforce issues impacting on the domestic violence and sexual assault sectors, in particular recruitment and retention (using key informant interviews, analysis of existing workforce data, organisational case studies in practice);
  2. outlining workforce issues at state, territory, and national levels (via a desk-based scan of existing policy and practice and analysis of policy and practice documents);
  3. clarifying priorities for national action and reform (a report which consolidates the findings above, identifies workforce development scenarios, and provides a draft plan clarifying priorities for national action and reform);
  4. recommending options for a possible National Workforce Agenda (via half day workshops with relevant stakeholders).
