CENTRE FOR RESEARCH EXCELLENCE TO PROMOTE SAFER FAMILIES: TAILORING EARLY IDENTIFICATION AND NOVEL INTERVENTIONS FOR INTIMATE PARTNER VIOLENCE
Grant number: 1116690 | Funding period: 2017 - 2022
Partner violence damages the health of families, particularly children. We aim to make all families safer by generating new knowledge from evidence (reviews of studies, data from following families over time and trials of health and community programs) to assist health and family services to identify violence early and tailor responses to individual’s experiences and to specific communities. We will support early career researchers by mentoring and an international network.
