  • Prevention of Violence against Women is a high profile and topical current issue, with Councils and community having an important role to play, as stated in the Royal Commission to Family Violence, with recommendation 94 advocating all councils “report on the measures they propose to take to reduce family violence and respond to the needs of victims” in preparing their Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plans
  • Councils around Victoria are reviewing their goals in relation to the prevention of violence against women and how to embed gender equity in their Health & Wellbeing Plans and Community Vision Strategies. Learn how you can do this within existing capacity and resources
