What is INCEPT 2.0?

INCEPT 2.0 is an online, interactive collective evaluation resource. It provides consistent measures and approaches to shared data collection around preventing family violence and all forms of violence against women, and gender equity (GE). It aims to create a platform for shared evaluation of projects addressing these issues.

Why INCEPT 2.0?

Counting on change , a national guide for facilitating consistent monitoring and evaluation of family violence prevention, recognises that one of the key challenges to tracking progress in this area is the absence of data collection mechanisms (Our Watch, 2017).

While monitoring indicators have been developed recently at a national level, there is no minimum data set requirement for monitoring prevention of violence against women (PVAW) across Australian states and territories.

Additionally, there is limited local level guidance on how to apply population level indicators to projects and a lack of evaluation resources and support for practitioners. INCEPT 2.0 provides some example indicators based on different project settings and approaches. The INW PCP Prevention Alliance and other organisations are currently testing the platform to ensure it meets local practice needs.
