About Us

About Us

Insight Exchange is an initiative of Domestic Violence Service Management (DVSM) www.dvnswsm.org.au, a registered charity, which aims to prevent and to provide support for people escaping/experiencing Domestic and Family Violence (DFV) and homelessness.
Our work contributes to and relies on a broader social and systemic commitment to be more aware of, informed about, and active in preventing and reducing violence.

About Insight Exchange

Insight Exchange is designed for citizens with lived experience of DFV, giving them a free, safe, ethical supported process for sharing their narrative (Insight), on their terms, and in a way that upholds their dignity throughout. With their consent, their narrative can safely be shared (Exchange) with the wider ecosystem (in a range of formats) so that organisations, institutes, individuals and communities can reflect on the narratives and take steps to drive informed positive social and systemic change.
Insight Exchange has been designed by DVSM, in collaboration with Dr Linda Coates and Dr Allan Wade.

Progress Update

Insight Exchange is not (yet) funded or established. Instead, the design is being ‘built’ with the generous commitment of skilled volunteers, and pro bono commitments to get us closer to establishing a ‘live’ opportunity for people who wish to share their experiences as a contribution to social change.

If you are interested in engaging in the concept of Insight Exchange through contributions of skilled effort, resource, influence or funding please use the Keep in Touch Page to talk with us.
