Territory Families is developing a Northern Territory Domestic, Family and Sexual Violence (DFSV) Workforce and Sector Development Plan (the Plan) under the Northern Territory DFSV Reduction Framework (2018-2028). To inform this work, we have developed a survey to better understand the DFSV training gaps and needs so that we can better support workers in responding to DFSV in the Northern Territory.

You have been invited to respond to this survey as you are working with or may be working with people at risk of or experiencing DFSV. Your response is valuable and we appreciate your time in completing this survey.

Under the Plan, we will be focussing on three broad areas of workers:

  • Universal /generalist services: services who may encounter victims and/or perpetrators of DFSV as part of their work, but for whom DFSV isn’t their core business. Includes health, education, alcohol and other drugs, immigration and settlement, mental health, accommodation, family support, financial counselling, disability, GPs, generalist legal, and youth services.
  • Services with statutory responsibilities: services and individuals whose responsibilities include providing statutory responses to victims and/or perpetrators, such as police, judiciary and courts, corrections, mental health, youth justice and child protection.
  • DFSV specialist services: services for whom the prevention of and/or response to DFSV is their core business, such as women’s safe houses, refuges and shelters, DFV counselling and outreach services, sexual violence response services, prevention services, men’s behaviour change services, and specialist legal services. Workers in these services usually have specialist skills in DFSV.
