Evaluation of the technology trial: Keeping women safe in their homes

11 November 2019

This report looks into technology-based solutions to keep women and children safe after domestic violence.

This report has been published by the Social Policy Research Centre, UNSW Sydney, on behalf of the Queensland Department of Child Safety, Youth and Women.

The report presents findings of an evaluation that aimed to investigate whether and how the technology-based initiative enables people to stay safer at home.

The initiative involved safety planning, personal duress alarms and security cameras, and a risk assessment of property, computers, smart phones and vehicles to assess surveillance and stalking security concerns. Findings indicate that innovative uses of technology are beneficial as part of a holistic, flexible service response.
