The role of the specialist women’s services: Survey on the standards of service provision for victims/survivors of gender-based violence

This survey was conducted at the end 2019 by Australian Women Against Violence Alliance to gather data and evidence for an update of the 2016 AWAVA’s Policy Brief on the unique role of the specialist women’s services in ending violence against women.


The survey asked victims/survivors to rate their experiences with both/either specialist women’s services or generalist services based on a set of guiding principles. The results confirm the unique and vital role that specialist women’s services play in supporting women subjected to violence.
