The Monash Gender and Family Violence Prevention Centre
(MGFVPC) was contracted by TaskForce to undertake the
evaluation of four rounds of the U-Turn program between
February 2019 and April 2021.
The evaluation approach was designed in close consultation with TaskForce to ensure it captures critical and meaningful
outcome measures that inform future service delivery at the intersection of men’s use of FV and problematic AOD use.
The evaluation examines the suitability and effectiveness of the U-Turn program in preventing subsequent FV, including breaches of FVIOs. The evaluation took a mixed-methods approach to examine program suitability and effectiveness. Data sources included surveys and interviews with program participants and their affected family members (AFMs) along with stakeholder focus groups and interviews.
