Victims and survivors of gender-based violence are increasingly being engaged in the co-production of research, policy and practice.

The aim of engaging victims and survivors is to ensure that the work of the domestic and family violence (DFV) sector benefits from their insights and meets their needs. However, there can often be a gap between the promise of co-production and what is delivered in practice.

This webinar will be invaluable to anyone in the DFV sector wanting to embed lived expertise in the co-production of research, policy and practice. It will unpack new research which explores the role of victims and survivors in developing policy and best practice mechanisms for engagement.

Panellists will discuss co-production and co-design in research, policy and practice, including how barriers, such as power imbalances, can be overcome and opportunities for best practice.

This discussion will be facilitated by Lula Dembele (Survivor Advocate & Founder of the Accountability Matters Project) with:

  • Geraldine Bilston, Senior Project Officer, Quality and Risk Program and Service Development Branch, Family Safety Victoria
  • Nicole Lee, Survivor Advocate
  • Dr Lisa Wheildon, Monash University
  • Shirleen Campbell, Co-coordinator of The Tangentyere Women’s Family Safety Group
  • Dr Jane Lloyd, Director, Research and Evaluation, ANROWS.

This webinar is open to anyone and free to attend. Live captioning will be available for the webinar. 

A recording of the webinar will also be made available.
