The Hopeful, Together, Strong: Principles of good practice to prevent violence against women in the Northern Territory report was produced by Chay Brown, a PhD student at CAEPR, as part of the 'Good practice in Indigenous-led programs to prevent violence against women' research project. This research project culminated in a series of collaborative workshops held throughout the Northern Territory in August and September 2019 to identify principles of good practice to prevent violence against women in the Northern Territory. Stakeholders working in the domestic, family, and sexual violence space were asked to select and rank principles of good practice and to develop context-specific indicators to guide the practice of these principles. The findings of the workshop series and the final outcome of this process - a Northern Territory-specific framework developed from grassroots expertise - is outlined in the report.
The report argues that bottom-up collaborative approaches are necessary in the development of frameworks in order to harness the expertise and insights of frontline workers who walk alongside people experiencing domestic, family, and sexual violence every day. The principles and indicators outlined in this report are vital to ensure organisations, programs, and staff working in specialist and non-specialist domestic, family, and sexual violence services are working from a shared understanding and united approach in order to prevent violence against women in the Northern Territory
