The Centre, led by Humphreys, Prof Kelsey Hegarty and Prof Stephanie Brown will conduct research into how early intervention work can help create safer communities.

The research will also look at the health sector responses needed to improve safety, health and well being of those affected by domestic and family violence.

The centre’s launch closely follows new data released by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare which reported the hospitalisation of nearly 6,500 women and girls from 2013-2014 as a result of domestic violence.
