The annual Week Without Violence (WWV) is coming up 16-22 October 2017. Since 1999, the northern metropolitan region has had a proud history of participation in the WWV, primarily through the Clothesline Project, which focuses on raising awareness about family violence. All organisations are encouraged to display WWV posters during the week.
On 14 September, the NIFVS Coordination Team held a workshop for WWV campaigners to come together and discuss their plans for activities, which ranged from shopping mall stalls to T-shirt painting activities to respectful relationships workshops.
This year, more than thirty WWV events will be facilitated in a range of organisations including local councils, community health services, mental health, disability and AOD services, culturally specific services, community legal services and courts, sexual assault and family violence services, and government departments.
