Guidelines for the DFV sector
DVNSW worked with the sector to develop a guide to good practice for the DFV sector. The DFV Good Practice Guidelines involved detailed research and consultation to identify good practice in the current service context in communities across NSW.
Guidelines for working with people experiencing homelessness
DVNSW, Homelessness NSW and YFoundations developed guidelines to support the delivery of services to people at risk of or currently experiencing homelessness:
- Assertive outreach good practice guidelines for services supporting people currently rough sleeping
- Good Practice Guidelines for working with unaccompanied children 12-15 years old accessing Specialist Homelessness Services.
The guidelines share common practice principles, such as trauma informed care, services being culturally informed and person-centred in their practice.
The guidelines also complement the FACS-produced SHS practice and program guidelines, referencing the four core responses of the SHS Service Delivery Framework.
