It is wonderful to see the conversation surrounding family violence and violence against women continuing. Last Tuesday, I, along with my fellow administrators, had the fantastic opportunity to sit in on a family violence action group meeting.
So many positive things were discussed during this meeting, including four goals for us all to work towards:
It was really encouraging to see the issue of family violence being tackled head-on and so many skilled and qualified professionals working together to create change and raise awareness surrounding this scourge on our community.
A big congratulations must go to all groups and organisations for their commitment and dedication to tackling and raising awareness for this issue.
If you or anyone you know has experienced family violence, please contact 1800 RESPECT on 1800 737 732 for 24/7 counselling, or call 000 in an emergency.
