At the moment I am busy working with Victoria Legal Aid evaluating their Settled and Safe Project which aims to learn the best way for women in newly arrived and emerging communities to get information about their legal rights and options in relation to domestic violence. I have worked with the project from the start so have been heavily involved in developing the work plan, the evaluation plan and providing coaching and mentoring to the project manager. I also delivered a training session on evaluation methods to the regionally based project workers.
I am also working with InTouch Multicultural Centre Against Family Violence to evaluate their project working with four communities to find out what works best in terms of family violence prevention.
And…for the next three months I am working with Women’s Health Victoria on their Take a Stand against Domestic Violence Project, which is providing training in workplaces with the aim of preventing family violence.
I love all of this work – it is truly a privilege to work with so many clever and committed women, all working to prevent or eliminate domestic violence. But I still have the energy and passion to do more so I am working on developing some training courses and coaching packages to introduce to the world.
