The Preventing Family Violence and Violence Against Women Capability Framework provides the foundational skill set required to deliver prevention of violence against women initiatives, with recognition that future development to encompass all forms of family violence will be required. As research and evidence is developed through Free From Violence: Victoria’s strategy to prevent family violence and all forms of violence against women (2017), this framework will incorporate the primary prevention skills and knowledge required to address the drivers of family violence impacting a range of individuals and communities.
This Framework encompasses the following four capabilities required to deliver primary prevention of violence against women initiatives:
- Designing logical, sequenced and sustainable prevention of violence against women initiatives, based on research, theory and evidence
- Implementation and monitoring of prevention of violence against women initiatives
- Documenting and disseminating process, impact and outcomes
- Leadership, advocacy and policy reform.
