The recently released Primary Prevention Strategy Free from Violence: Victoria’s Strategy to Prevent Family Violence and All Forms of Violence Against Women sets out the path for all Victorians to experience equality and respect in their homes, workplaces and communities.
The G21 Physical Activity Strategy was developed in partnership with 5 x Councils that make up the G21 Region – City of Greater Geelong, Surf Coast Shire, Colac-Otway Shire, Golden Plains Shire and the Borough of Queenscliffe.
On Tuesday 31st of January, a group of dedicated agents of change descended on the Surf Coast Shire community rooms to discuss actions around preventing one of Australia’s most pressing health issues; violence against women and children.
VicHealth is working with teams from a range of sports, including the AFL Women’s League, Women’s Big Bash League and Women's National Basketball League to encourage Victorians to watch sport for the love of the game.
A four-year family violence strategy will create a long-lasting partnership that produces innovative, collective action to address violence against women and children and create a safe and healthy community.
