The Family Safety Hub research insights are the foundation of the work of the hub. These insights were gathered during the design of the Family Safety Hub. Interviews with people affected by domestic and family violence and frontline workers helped us form a comprehensive picture of the problem we are tackling.
When we evaluate how we work we consider if we are finding and following the right opportunities, how effective our design and delivery activities are and if our work achieved the impacts we wanted.
The Family Safety Hub looks for opportunities to address one or more of our research insights and to build on these insights. We work with community partners to identify these opportunities and their potential impact. We reflect on this choice and if it was the right one. This informs the selection of future opportunities.
We follow an innovation process and work in collaboration with our partners to generate ideas, test the best ones from prototype to pilot, then embed them as a new service or support. This process is not static and we adapt as needed for different projects.
All Family Safety Hub activities are designed to achieve one or more of these impacts:
- creates new or improved pathways to safety that better meet the needs of the community
- promotes integration and cohesion across the service and support system
- builds capability across the system
- fosters shared understanding of domestic and family violence and its impacts
We consider how to have these impacts from the very start of the project and evaluate our success in achieving our aim.
