The Family and Community Safety for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples (FaCtS) Study will contribute to improving family and community safety for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples by providing evidence on: the impact of violence on women and children in remote, regional and urban communities; the social impacts of violence; the availability, appropriateness and effectiveness of services and other supports for both reducing the incidence of violence and addressing the consequences for women and children when it does occur; and on what else is needed to reduce exposure to, and the effects of, violence in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
