Domestic Violence Safety Assessment Tool

Domestic Violence Safety Assessment Tool (DVSAT) (PDF, 231.6 KB) (PDF, 231.6 KB) is for use by non-government service providers and government agencies other than NSW Police Force. The DVSAT has primarily been designed for use in intimate partner violence situations.

Service providers who decide to use the DVSAT in other situations should be mindful that some of the questions in Part A might not be relevant. Service providers should use their professional judgement about the appropriateness of individual questions.

The DVSAT does not change or replace existing child protection obligations and procedures
