Domestic and Family Violence: sharing information

PRESENTED BY: Queensland Centre for Domestic and Family Violence Research

Every day, in a range of services around Queensland, workers encounter people experiencing, or perpetrating domestic and family violence.

This means that every day workers hear information that causes them to be concerned for the safety of victims of this violence.

However, many workers are not aware of when and how they may appropriately share information, to protect victims, under the current legislative provisions.  This brief video introduces you to the Domestic and Family Violence Information Sharing Guidelines, a valuable resource designed to answer those questionsYou will be shown how to access the Guidelines and learn about:

  • what is permitted under the legislation,
  • who is allowed to share information,
  • what circumstances allow information sharing without consent to ensure the safety of victims and children,
  • and what information can be shared.

Everyone values their privacy, and whenever safe, possible and practical, workers should gain a person’s consent providing personal information about the person to someone else.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander viewers are warned this video may contain images of people who have since passed.
