What we understand about domestic, family and sexualised violence informs how we respond; it influences how we design products, services and systems. It influences how we communicate about those products, services and systems.
When a person experiencing domestic, family and sexualised violence reaches out it may be the first, only or last time they seek support.
Insight Exchange materials are free (donated) to support all responding individuals and organisations. Read the guidance on using Insight Exchange. Thankyou for your commitment to preserve the integrity of this work.

Responding to domestic and family violence during and beyond COVID-19:
We have developed a series of guides to support the responses of individuals and sectors to people experiencing domestic and family violence during and beyond COVID-19.
Each guide takes a focus on considerations for now, and next, to be ready to support people experiencing domestic and family violence.
Supporting people during and beyond COVID-19 is our shared responsibility and no sector can create safety alone.
- A guide for family and friends
- A guide for workplaces
- A guide for responding to customers
- A guide for faith communities
- A guide for responding to tertiary students
