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.
Big roster is now available — for Oct 2020 — Jan 2021.
