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 targeted communities. 

Researchers from the Gendered Violence Research Network (GVRN) and the Social Policy Research Centre (SPRC), both at UNSW Sydney, evaluated IFDVS. This is a mixed-method inquiry combining a synthesis of service monitoring data, validated scales and measures, and 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 full financial years 2015-16 and 2016-17.
