Hack4DV Final Report

  1. 1. NCOSS #hack4DV Report, January 2018

  3. 3. HackDV Interviews
  4. 4. Contents 1. Background 2. Family and DV themes 3. Problem statements 4. Teams and ideas 5. Winners 6. Next steps We believe young people should create, not inherit the future. Vibewire is the launchpad for young changemakers.
  5. 5. Background Vibewire in partnership with NCOSS, Jewish House, Minerva Collective, Western Sydney University, MnM Institute and Academy Xi hosted #Hack4DV on 8-10 December 2017. Over 100 people participated in the hackathon including, coders, designers, entrepreneurs and subject matter experts from Western Sydney University, Aunty’s House, Films4Change and DV NSW. As well as people with lived experience of family and domestic violence (past and recent). More than 50% of participants had never been to a hackathon before - and only a small number of people had previously met. We were all swimming in uncharted waters. Over 36 hours, twelve teams formed and developed solutions that addressed the key themes and problem statements.
  6. 6. Impacts on Children & Young people Giving a voice and support to children and young people Themes Prevention and Early Intervention to deal with trauma, isolation, mental health and rebuilding lives Financial Inclusion and employment access to flexible education, training & employment Accommodation transitional, temporary and long term.
  7. 7. Despite billions of dollars of investment and long term commitment to addressing family and domestic violence, we continue to see rates and costs rise. Domestic violence: ● Costs the Australian economy $13.6 billion a year ● Costs the NSW economy $4.5 billion a year ● Is massive in scale with NSW Police reporting over 27,000 domestic violence assaults in 2014 ● Poses a bigger health risk to women aged 18-44 than smoking, diabetes and obesity ● Is 10 times higher in rural, regional and remote NSW ● Affects 1 million children and is present in 50% of households where children are abused. Moreover: ● Aboriginal women are 35 times more likely to be hospitalised as a result of family and domestic violence. Problem we are solving
  8. 8. Problem Statements JEWISH HOUSE Challenge: Supporting the child to disrupt the cycle of disadvantage. Children are often the voiceless and those impacted greatly as a result of family and domestic violence. Supports for children are needed to ensure they have the right opportunities and mentorship. NCOSS Challenge: There are many support services and structures in place across the community and government that deal with the support and safety of women. However, there are little services or support (accommodation or otherwise) available to men who commit acts of violence in their relationships. There is almost no early intervention support or emergency accommodation in order that women can stay safe at home and the violent party leaves.
