ANROWS survey for service providers – technology-facilitated abuse

We appreciate if you can share this survey to support the first stage of an Australian National Research Organisation for Women’s Safety (ANROWS) national research project on technology-facilitated abuse.

ANROWS is recruiting workers to complete a 20-minute anonymous online survey. The link to the survey can be found here: https://rmit.au1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_8bM5iNhlwMnJCfP.

Who is this survey for?

This survey is for service providers that work with people who experience or use violence, including domestic violence or sexual assault services, legal services, homelessness/housing, health, men’s behaviour change, family relationship services, migrant services, disability services, LGBTIQ+ services, prevention organisations, government policy and specialist services for Aboriginal or Torres Islander people.

What is the purpose of the survey?

The survey is the first stage of this research project. It aims to leverage the practice-based knowledge of people working in the sector to find out more about technology-facilitated abuse including:

  • the extent to which clients experience or use technology-facilitated abuse
  • forms of abusive tactics experienced
  • the training and resources available
  • gaps and challenges workers face.

When does the survey close?

Please complete the survey by 31 October 2020. However, the survey may be extended beyond this deadline if necessary.

Please also find attached a poster with more details.

We encourage you to complete the survey, and circulate it amongst your networks.

If you would like more information about the survey, please contact Asher Flynn at asher.flynn@monash.edu.
