NCLS Fam­ily Viol­ence Sur­vey:  Our Church is com­mit­ted to sup­port­ing safe and lov­ing homes and safe churches. Recog­nising that intim­ate part­ner viol­ence, which forms part of domest­ic and fam­ily viol­ence, is a ser­i­ous and wide­spread prob­lem, with enorm­ous indi­vidu­al and com­munity impacts and social costs – and that the Church is not immune — our Church seeks to improve our policy and prac­tice to respond to these dif­fi­cult issues.

If you con­sider your­self an Anglic­an, or have an asso­ci­ation with the Anglic­an Church and have had an exper­i­ence of domest­ic abuse i.e. viol­ence from an intim­ate part­ner, we humbly ask that you con­sider shar­ing your per­spect­ive. If you know someone who fits this descrip­tion, please con­sider passing on this request. This anonym­ous online sur­vey con­tains ques­tions about demo­graph­ics (such as age and gender), per­son­al exper­i­ences of intim­ate part­ner viol­ence and ways in which the Anglic­an Church fea­tured in your story.

A small num­ber of people will also be inter­viewed in depth face to face. At the end of the online sur­vey, you may indic­ate if you are avail­able to be interviewed.
