Results of Community Survey on Family Violence

Wednesday, April 08, 2015   Posted in: Resources and Information By: Administrator With tags: violence, families, survey

How much does our community know about family violence? The results are out for the Canterbury family Violence Collaboration’s latest Community Survey!

The survey was undertaken by the Prevention Work Stream in August 2014. The survey captured a good sample size of 106 respondents. The surveys were completed across five local malls including: New Brighton, Eastgate Shopping Centre, Northlands Shopping Centre, Westfield Riccarton and Halswell New World.

The findings paint a very interesting picture of the range of knowledge and beliefs held in our community around family violence. The overall impression is of strong awareness in the community of the issue of family violence and of potential sources of support; however, this is hampered by a limited capacity to help others due to a lack of understanding or helping skills.

The Prevention Work Stream have used these results to inform their programme of action for 2015 and have since taken on a focus of providing community education on how to help others with family violence.

Some key findings from the Survey

  • Knowledge of the diverse nature of family violence (i.e. that it includes verbal, emotional, financial, sexual and spiritual abuse) is fairly limited within the community
  • There is a strong willingness in the community to assist friends and family, and to a slightly lesser degree, neighbours with family violence.
  • Personal safety is a major barrier to helping others with family violence
  • The presence of children increases the likelihood of family violence being reported
  • The public view many different types of agencies/organisations as sources of help for family violence
  • There are many different types of sources of help for family violence
  • The community has strong awareness of the Police as a potential source of help for family violence
  • A large proportion of the community has seen a family violence message in Christchurch
