The Government is committed to continuing its flexible and evidence-based approach and listening to emerging issues, and is currently undertaking a comprehensive review of the family violence service system in Tasmania.
As part of this review, and to ensure our approach to family violence service delivery is ‘on track’, we want to hear from people with lived experience of family violence about their experience of engaging with family violence or community services in Tasmania.
People who have experienced family violence are therefore encouraged to participate in the survey. The survey should take approximately 20 minutes to complete and family violence service providers can assist participants to fill out the survey. Survey participants will remain completely anonymous.
The survey will close 11pm on Sunday 2 December 2018.
