Trigger Warning: Please note, the content of this article and related Survey may be confronting or triggering for some readers.
The Tasmanian Government has launched the consultation strategy for development of the third Family and Sexual Violence Action Plan.
The voices of victim-survivors are at the centre of the Government’s approach to consultation and collaboration with the Tasmanian community, and there are five key elements of consultation:
- Hearing Lived Experience Survey 2022
- Establishing a Victim-Survivor Advisory Council
- Targeted Workshops with stakeholders
- Partnering with the Tasmanian Aboriginal community
- Public Written Submissions
For more information about consultation strategy and timeline visit the Safe from Violence website.
Hearing Lived Experience Survey
The Hearing Lived Experience Survey 2022 is an online public survey of adult victim-survivors with lived experience of family and sexual violence.
The Survey opened on 11 February 2022 and will remain open for 12 months to provide time for victim-survivors to come forward and safely share their story.
The Survey can be accessed via the homepage of the Safe from Violence website
The online survey includes a Quick Exit button, information on completing the survey safely, and key emergency and service support information is featured throughout the survey.
The Survey and supporting information have been developed by the Department of Communities Tasmania in consultation with key government and non-government stakeholders and victim-survivors of family and sexual violence.
The Department of Justice plays a key role in the Tasmanian Government’s provision of services and support for victim survivors of family violence through the Safe at Home Coordination Team.
If you would like to share your experiences to inform the development of the plan or know someone who might, please take the time to complete the survey or pass on the link.
