There are a number of key resources you can draw on when working on community projects. Depending on the length of the community project or program some of the indicators can be benchmarked against the National Community Attitudes toward Violence against Women Survey (NCAS) domains given there is an adequate amount of time for knowledge, attitudes and skills to change (e.g. over 3 years).
Reflective and narrative techniques of data collection are recommended in most community work that seeks to assess changes in attitudes, knowledge and skills (see our Data collection methods section).
Indicators in this section could be adapted to sporting settings or other place based community work.
