End violence against women

End violence against women

The Week Without Violence (WWV), held 14 - 20 October this year, is an annual world-wide campaign to end violence against women.

1 in 3 Australian women over the age of 15 has experienced physical or sexual violence and/or emotional abuse by an intimate partner. Family violence takes a profound and long-term toll on women and children’s health and wellbeing, on families and communities, and on society as a whole. Together, we can change attitudes and the gender inequality that is a cause and consequence of violence against women and children.

WWV activities have been facilitated across the northern metropolitan region of Melbourne through local family violence networks since 1999.  A 20th Anniversary Celebration will be held on Wednesday 16 October in Collingwood that will feature an exhibition and the screening of a film celebrating the history in the region.  Participants will also have the opportunity to design their own message. Register now to attend this free event.

More than 50 WWV events are planned in the northern metropolitan region this week with the majority being a Clothesline Project activity. See the WWV 2019 calendar for the list of public events.

FEATURED PILOT PROGRAM: Hope to Home in Whittlesea

Many young people face obstacles when trying to secure stable accommodation due to no rental history, lack of affordable housing, and no employment to sustain rental leases.  The Hope to Home in Whittlesea pilot program will address these issues by:

  • Facilitating the transition of up to 30 young people (and their children) from the Hope Street in Whittlesea program or Whittlesea Housing into 1 and 2 bedroom units
  • Providing case management once they secure private rental of these units
  • Helping these young people maintain their tenancy, employment, education and training, and community connections
  • Engaging the support of community stakeholders including local businesses to address barriers contributing to youth homelessness

Please contact us if you would like to become a partner and support at risk young people and young families.
