What We Do

Research & data

Do you need data about our family violence service?

We can provide data reports for councils and community organisations.

We can provide information about numbers and types of clients and insights into different local government areas across the west.

Please note that we are not able to fulfil all requests. We will prioritise requests: 

  • from organisations that are committed to long-term family violence work
  • that will have the greatest influence, e.g. using the data to advocate for family violence work
  • that we can fulfil within our limited capacity
