Thank you for your interest in this study.
The aim of this research is to learn more about our sporting communities and what work is currently being done across our sports clubs and associations in relation to preventing and responding to gender-based violence. When we talk about gender-based violence we mean harmful acts directed at an individual based on their gender.
The survey has four sections. The first three sections ask about you, your role in sport, and the place where you participate in sport. The fourth section asks about gender-based violence. These questions are mostly taken from the National Community Attitudes Survey, which is a survey conducted in Australia every four years. There is also an additional set of questions for those who indicate they have a leadership role in sport. These will appear at the end of the first section of the survey.
We want to know more about our sporting communities and what they are doing so we can work with them early next year to co-design appropriate initiatives and resources.
