New Ways for Our Families: QATSICPP’s first collaborative research report is now available
Over the past year the QATSICPP Team been working with community researchers across 8 (eight) sites conducting community research on the impacts of domestic and family violence on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and young people.
On 7 April 2022 ANROWS published New Ways for Our Families, the first of two reports covering the research team’s initial research findings.
The report shows child protection responses to domestic and family violence are failing our children and new responses must focus on hearing the voices of children, young people and women to support them.
It includes a literature review with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander studies preferenced, that shows the gaps in this area of study and the need for community led approaches to improving service and system responses to DFV for children and young people.
QATSICPP would like to take this opportunity to thank the community researchers, university partners, Jenny Parsons (Mulungu) and QATSICPP team members Candice Butler, Reno French, Tamara Creamer, Lisa Hillan and Eva Ruggiero for their valuable contributions to this critical research.
