Prevention of Violence Against Women

Regional Prevention of Violence against Women activity

A key part of our commitment to the prevention of violence against women (PVAW) is our ongoing support for, and contribution to the implementation of regional PVAW approaches, led by women’s health organisations in our catchment. INW PCP plays an important role in supporting evaluation at a regional level. We provide technical and evaluation expertise in the form of interactive evaluation support and via conducting regional evaluation, as part of our commitment to this work.

The INCEPT project

The Inner North West Collaborative Evaluation Project (INCEPT) originated in 2011 as a collaborative evaluation project of the INW PCP Prevention Alliance  (the Alliance) in partnership with the University of Melbourne.

In 2017, the Alliance was awarded a Community Partnerships for Primary Prevention grant to support INCEPT’s further development by engaging and working with a broader range of priority population groups and settings. The INCEPT initiative developed and tested indicators for a broader range of settings through an interactive, co-design approach. Partners participated in shared data collection and piloted new indicator sets, templates and tools.

During the pilot, there were demonstrated improvements in participant confidence and skills in evaluation. It was also identified that different organisations have different levels of capacity, leadership and support for evaluation practice and therefore a range of materials and guidance were developed alongside the shared measurement framework.

The updated INCEPT resource has been developed extensively into an online resource to provide concise and practical support for monitoring and evaluating prevention of violence against women and gender equity work. It provides example indicators, templates and tools for us in individual projects or in shared data collection. Go to the INCEPT page for more details.
