WHIN has released the northern metropolitan region’s second regional strategy to prevent violence against women, Building a Respectful Community Strategy 2017-2021.
The Strategy aims to guide, inspire and support organisations to prevent violence against women and promote gender equity across workplaces, community groups and neighbourhoods, services and facilities, and communications.
The Strategy was developed by the Building a Respectful Community Partnership. This includes seven local governments, 13 health services and organisations, three community service organisations and a tertiary institution. All partner organisations have committed to taking action under all five goal areas of the Strategy over the next four years.
Building a Respectful Community Strategy 2017–2021 builds on the impressive range of work occurring across Melbourne’s north, and continues the collaborative approach that was established in the first regional strategy, Building a Respectful Community – Preventing Violence against Women – A Strategy for the Northern Metropolitan Region of Melbourne 2011–2016.
