Working with its member Associations and Our Watch, ALGA has helped produce two webinars for councils to support them to prevent violence against women in their communities.
These webinars support a local government toolkit which was developed in partnership with the Department of Social Services and launched in 2020.
This toolkit guides councils through the process of setting up a working group, making a statement of commitment, undertaking audits and developing policies, engaging with their communities, and monitoring and evaluating prevention activity.
Further resources, including a series of fact sheets, are currently being developed and will released by the end of this year.
