About Us

Insight Exchange is an initiative of Domestic Violence Service Management (DVSM) dvnswsm.org.au, a registered charity (ABN 26 165 400 635), which aims to prevent and to provide support for people experiencing Domestic and Family Violence (DFV), homelessness and other safety and wellbeing needs.

DVSM’s 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.

Insight Exchange has been developed to contribute to this much needed work, and to extend these efforts, in August 2020 DVSM established the Insight Exchange Foundation. The Insight Exchange Foundation’s work is to take the work further forward across communities, sectors and systems informing and supporting improved responses to domestic and family violence.

About the Team

The Insight Exchange team consists of Director, Sal Dennis (former CEO of DVSM and founding collaborator in the design and establishment of Insight Exchange), and Assistant Director, Luke Addinsall, who joined the team in Feb 2022 to extend and evolve Insight Exchange. Together with the Insight Exchange Associates and with key collaborators and supporters, participants, and skilled volunteers, the Insight Exchange team is taking the work further forward into sectors and communities who may benefit.

Acknowledgment and thanks

The work and influence of Insight Exchange has been enriched through the support of individual contributors including former employees of DVSM, Associates, volunteers, allies and friends in the work. Our thanks extend also to the de-identified individuals who have contributed through sharing their lived experiences of domestic and family violence for the benefit of many.


Insight Exchange has been established, developed and governed by DVSM since inception. Insight Exchange has been sustained through the generous humble donations of individuals and a silent donor for the benefit of many.

Gaps in understanding, systemic design, policy, provision and practice across the response continuum are used by perpetrators of violence to extend their use of abuse and this further compound the suffering, loss, injury, injustice and indignity of victims of violence.

We continue to seek and welcome financial support to make the Insight Exchange ideas, resources and supports available across every community, sector and system without cost or access barriers.

Donations are tax deductible and can be made through the Insight Exchange Donate Funds page or directly. To make a direct payment simply reach out to the Insight Exchange team by using Insight Exchange contact us.
