This report contains the results of a mixed methods research study exploring the characteristics and activities of Department of Social Services' (DSS) funded Family and Relationship Services (FaRS) and Specialised Family Violence Services (SFVS).

The project was undertaken so that the DSS can better understand the nature and type of FaRS and SFVS activities, their referral pathways, risk-management practices, service linkages and approaches to meeting client needs. The research also aimed to share participants' strategies and approaches for identifying and responding to local community needs.

The results from this research will help to inform future service delivery and design, as well as support the capacity building of services and workers supporting those experiencing, or at risk of, domestic and family violence.
