This research project has been designed to provide a national mapping and meta-evaluation of the key features of “safe at home” programs that enhance safety and prevent homelessness for women and their children who have experienced domestic and family violence. The project was undertaken in two phases. The first phase involved the preparation of a state of knowledge paper providing a comprehensive review of the literature and a national mapping of current “safe at home” programs by jurisdiction, including details of legislation underpinning “safe at home” programs in each jurisdiction. In the second phase, the authors undertook a meta-evaluation of select evidence about Australian “safe at home” programs and practices. This report presents the results of the meta-evaluation. It concludes with recommendations for future “safe at home” evaluations, as well as key considerations for “safe at home” responses in terms of core program elements, contexts and circumstances
