Trial gives tools
MANDURAH is one of five sites chosen by the Federal Government to trial a 12month domestic and family violence prevention toolkit for local government.
The toolkit provides evidence-based resources to help local councils partner with their communities to plan and implement initiatives to prevent violence.
The Government has allocated $150,000 to the Mandurah trial.
It has allocated $750,000 across the five sites and a further $350,000 to Australia’s National Research Organisation for Women’s Safety to review its impact and minor outcomes.
Canning MHR Andrew Hastie (pictured) said family safety was a key priority for Mandurah.
“There’s no excuse for domestic and family violence,’’ he said.
“The Federal Government is partnering with the City of Mandurah to fund violence prevention projects and raise awareness in the community.”
