Outcome 2: Provide best practice and evidence-based approaches to online inclusion and respect in policy and practice
A review of research literature on technology-facilitated abuse, alongside best-practice policy benchmarking has been conducted. A report has been prepared with recommendations to more explicitly reference technology-facilitated abuse in existing policy relating to conduct and behaviour, as well as relevant IT and social media policies.
The report also makes recommendations to ensure response staff are appropriately trained in understanding the nature and impact of technology-facilitated abuse and equipped to provide support, and around developing best practice prevention initiatives to foster online inclusion and respect. Recommendations will be actioned by working with key stakeholders to update policy and practice commencing in Q3, 2023.
Work is underway to complete other actions related to this outcome, please check back periodically as we'll update our progress through 2023.
