Description

Help Casey reduce family violence

The City of Casey is calling on residents to participate in a community forum to help shape the Family Violence Prevention Strategy 2017-2021 Action Plan.

As a key objective of the Council Plan 2017-2021, the Family Violence Prevention Strategy 2017-2021 identifies family violence as one of the most significant community safety issues within Casey and provides direction for both Council and public health sector organisations to work together with the community.

The Action Plan, a four-year strategic plan, aims to provide an inclusive, safe and connected community, with associated Council services and facilities directly driven by community needs.

City of Casey Mayor Cr Geoff Ablett said family violence is a key community safety issue within our municipality.

“As a Council we have committed to working towards ensuring that Casey is a family-friendly city, where everyone feels safe in their homes, neighbourhoods, public spaces and on public transport. This strategy and action plan are key documents that will enable us to work towards delivering this for our community”, said the Mayor.

“We are putting the call out for interested residents to join us at this community forum, so we can hear first hand what the community wants and needs from Council to help reduce family violence.”

The forum will feature:

  • Keynote speaker Kit McMahon CEO of Women’s Health in the South East (WHISE).
  • A discussion on the City of Casey’s Family Violence Prevention Strategy.
  • The opportunity to have input into how Council will support family violence prevention in the community.

Lunch and free childcare will be provided to all participants.
