New council resources to prevent violence against women

A series of new fact sheets has been developed to support councils under a partnership between Our Watch and ALGA.

The 12 fact sheets provide an overview and introduction of the role local government can play in the prevention of violence against women.  The tools are relevant for councils and council staff at various stages of their prevention work.

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.

For more information about the role of council in prevention, you can access Our Watch’s Prevention toolkit for local government.
