INSIGHT | Information and reflection support for people who are experiencing domestic and family violence, and for responders

Through Insight Exchange I have the opportunity to share my lived experience of domestic and family violence in an accurate way through a safe, ethical and supported process.

Insight Exchange shares my lived experience, highlighting my responses and resistance to violence and where ‘social responses’ were helpful, unhelpful or harmful.


INSIGHT MENU | The Insight component invites people with lived experiences of domestic and family violence and other adversities, to share their experience through a safe and ethical process that affirms agency and upholds dignity. The insights are grouped into resources, projects, and initiatives to support others who may be reflecting on their own experiences of domestic and family violence and to inform people who are responding.
