Speakers’ Forum – Not In Our Backyard: Building A Community Free From Violence

Domestic Violence Forum Melbourne

Sadly, violence against women and children continues to occur all over the world, including on our doorstep.

So when is enough, enough? What are the facts and figures in our own community? How are victims being assisted? What happens to the perpetrators? How can we help to end this violence?

Be encouraged by recent research findings and inspired to make a difference. Hear from expert speakers including Scott Holmes from YMCA, Allison Wainwright from Family Life, Rachel Ellyard from the Royal Commission into Family Violence, Kaye Swanton from Violence Free Families and Peter Streker from Community Stars.

Join in conversation with them about ways to STOP family violence and build a safer world for all.

Proudly presented by St Stephen’s Anglican Church Gardenvale.
