The NSW Integrated Domestic and Family Violence Service program (IDFVS) provides a multi-agency, integrated and coordinated response to domestic and family violence among high-risk target groups and in targeted communities. Researchers from the Gendered Violence Research Network (GVRN) and the Social Policy Research Centre (SPRC), both at UNSW Sydney, conducted the evaluation of IFDVS. This is a mixed-method inquiry combining a synthesis of service monitoring data, validated scales and measures, as well as qualitative interviews and focus groups. The quantitative evaluation component is a retrospective data analysis based on program service delivery (portal) data for 24 months from July 2015 to June 2017 covering two complete financial years 2015-16 and 2016-17.
