Description

Jacqui Watt, CEO of No to Violence.

Male family violence is a topic close to Jacqui’s heart having experienced it as a child. Her determination to assist NTV succeed in its work of ending family violence by working with men means she is an inspiring speaker, contributes to discussions on what works and is committed to changing how the community prevents, thinks about and responds to this pernicious social issue.

No to Violence undertook a grass-roots listening tour in areas of family violence high incidence across Victoria in September and October 2018. Jacqui Watt convened the workshops and met with participants from a wide cross-section of each community in metropolitan and regional Victoria, including Shepparton.

The published report is based on a 12-stop Listening Tour across the state of Victoria, reaching out to participants across the community sector. The tour was an opportunity to build a collaborative approach as well as identify gaps and common family violence themes across the state. Workshop participants included:

  • Local MPs
  • Experts and community leaders from the family violence sector
  • Police
  • Legal services
  • Culturally and linguistically diverse communities
  • Health workers
  • Frontline service providers.

The purpose of the tour was to gather local knowledge on how family violence is being dealt with on the ground from the perspective of local practitioners and intersecting service providers. To open this session, Jacqui will talk about the findings presented in the Victorian Listening Tour Report.

A panel of local services will then talk about the work we are doing on a local level.

Followed by lunch and a tour of the new court house
