Indicators

The National Outcome Standards for Perpetrator Interventions indicators were developed following a review of available data and other reporting information from women’s safety, health, justice and corrections agencies. Available data was mapped against the following headline standards:

  • Headline Standard 1: Women and their children’s safety is the core priority of all perpetrator intervention.
  • Headline Standard 2: Perpetrators get the right interventions at the right time.
  • Headline Standard 3: Perpetrators face justice and legal consequences when they commit violence.
  • Headline Standard 4: Perpetrators participate in programs and services that enable them to change their violent behaviours and attitudes.
  • Headline Standard 5: Perpetrator interventions are driven by credible evidence to continuously improve.
  • Headline Standard 6: People working in perpetrator intervention systems are skilled in responding to the dynamics and impacts of domestic, family and sexual violence.

The first National Outcome Standards for Perpetrator Interventions report will be released in early 2018 using 2015–16 data.
