VISION Advisory Board
Meet our members

The VISION Advisory Board is a vehicle to engage with users of the research, data providers and other relevant stakeholders in violence prevention such as academics and data scientists.

Board members bring experience in health and health services, crime, and justice services, and domestic and sexual violence and specialist services. They include academics from a range of disciplines, policy makers, people from service providing and campaign organisations, and people from organisations that collect, curate, or use data on violence, health, and inequalities.
