Family Support Project - Employees and Families Surveys
The Western Australia Police Force is currently undertaking a Family Support Project. The WA Police Force recognises the important role that families play in the lives of our employees, and the importance of maintaining family wellbeing.
The aim of the Family Support Project is to identify the current knowledge, needs and desires of serving and retired employees and their families, with regards to support services provided by the WA Police Force. This project is intended to inform future family-focused strategies, to optimally support families and the employee’s health, safety and wellbeing.
The WA Police Force has engaged Master of Social Work students from the University of Western Australia to undertake this research project.
The research team have prepared two anonymous surveys, one for police employees and one for family members. The team are seeking honest and direct feedback and recommendations from participants. The team are also seeking direct engagement with employees and families; and will be undertaking station visits in metro and regional areas, and hosting family events such as station BBQs.
The surveys and events are running from today until the 18th of May 2018.
If you would like further information please contact Samuel Calleja and Gemma Varney in the WA Police Force Health and Safety Division. If you would like your station to have a family event, email Gemma or Sam and they will happily arrange and run an event for you. These events are available for both metro and regional stations.
