Voices of Experience are written insights and reflections from people with lived experience of domestic and family violence and other adversities.
The participants are the authors of the written insight, and in some pieces, the Insight Exchange team have inserted content from the Follow My Lead resource as headings to help orientate the reader and to build understanding of the lived experience of violence.
- What does safety mean for me?
- Dear Australian police officers
- His abuse has and continues to harm my children
- The threat of violence is violence
- Liberty and Violence
Acknowledgement and thanks:
Domestic Violence Service Management would like to thank each person with lived experience of Domestic and Family Violence who has generously shared their insights for the benefit of others.
We acknowledge that no matter how accurate the representation of someone’s experiences of violence and adversity, we can never fully understand all that the experiences mean to a person now or through their life. We understand that no one’s life experience can ever be fully represented in language or any other form.
