|Abstract:||The GVDVS is an innovative approach aimed at improving the response to women and children experiencing domestic violence, through a partnership between NSW Health, the Department of Community Services, Police, Housing and a range of non-government agencies. Health is the lead agency. Because of the developmental and evolving nature of the GVDVS, a ‘formative’ or ‘process’ evaluation was conducted. Data was collected from a range of sources including clients and staff of the service; frontline and management representatives of agencies in the area served by the service; and the client, training and community development records of the service. Analysis of this data indicated that the presence of a specialist domestic violence service has been the catalyst for improved interagency responses to domestic violence in Green Valley. GVDVS has developed a model of service delivery to women and children that provides a model of good practice in domestic violence service delivery within the health system.|
