The Australian Children’s Safety Alliance (ACSA) has been hosting the Community of Practice Working with Perpetrators (CoP) for two years. At the beginning in February of 2021 we welcomed Sarah Wendt and Kris Natalier from SWIRLS who joined with us to co-design the CoP, and since then we have met six times.  

We’ve covered a lot of topics in this time, from a deep dive into risk assessments, to the experiences of women working in the field, to a focus on children and keeping them front of mind, and we investigated and shared tips and tools we all used in our work with men. We heard from many of our peers, including the Department of Child Protection and the Multi-agency Protection Service, and learnt about the Information sharing guidelines and how they interface with our agencies. Throughout it all we have discussed many case studies, many of which came from you as members of the CoP, and shared our experiences working with men and families. 

ACSA would now like to invite you as members of the Community of Practice or as members of the ACSA leadership group to come together to celebrate what has been achieved. Sarah Wendt and Kris Natalier will again be joining us to share their insights now that we are two years in, and also to share their current research projects and learnings since they joined us in February 2021. We will also be sharing what we’ve learnt as a Community of Practice and our hopes for 2023 and beyond.  

Please join us on Thursday November 17th at 3:00pm-6:00pm for this important event.
