New council resources for preventing violence against women

ALGA has been working closely with Our Watch – a national leader in the primary prevention of violence against women and their children in Australia – to develop a suite of new resources for councils.

The organisation was created to drive nationwide change in the practices, norms and structures that lead to violence against women and children.

Over the past 12 months, the partnership between ALGA and Our Watch has resulted in additional resources to help councils prevent domestic violence in their communities including two webinars, an animation and a series of factsheets which are soon to be released.

These additional resources have been developed to assist local government in implementing the Domestic Violence Toolkit for Local Government.
