Improving housing and service responses to domestic and family violence for Indigenous individuals and families

Final Report No. 320

Data Published: 29 Aug 2019

Authors: Kyllie Cripps Daphne Habibis

This study investigated the needs of Indigenous women and children who are severely over-represented in rates of domestic and family violence (DFV). Developing culturally appropriate responses to Indigenous DFV and improving integration between housing and DFV and child protection services should reduce rates of Indigenous women's injury and death, as well as rates of Indigenous children's out-of-home care.
