Launch: Pride in Prevention Evidence Guide
Rainbow Health Victoria is proud to announce the launch of Pride in Prevention: A guide to primary prevention of family violence experienced by LGBTIQ communities.
- Wednesday 01 July 2020 01:00 pm (Add to calendar)
- Rainbow Health Victoria
- Presented by:
- The Hon. Gabrielle Williams MP, Minister for Prevention of Family Violence
Ro Allen, the Commissioner for Gender and Sexuality
- Type of Event:
This guide has been produced by the LGBTIQ Family Violence Prevention Project 2019-2021, a ground-breaking initiative led by Rainbow Health Victoria and funded by the Office for Women in the Victorian Department of Premier and Cabinet.
This project forges new ground in the primary prevention of family violence experienced by LGBTIQ communities, seeking to address critical evidence gaps, strengthen understanding of the drivers of violence, and build expertise for both LGBTIQ organisations and family violence primary prevention organisations to effectively deliver evidence-based programs.
Pride in Prevention summarises the current available evidence on the drivers of family violence experienced by LGBTIQ communities and provides recommendations for priority interventions to address it. The guide will underpin the work of several pilot primary prevention activities to be co-developed and delivered as part of the next phase of this project.
The event will be opened by Gabrielle Williams, Minister for Prevention of Family Violence, and Ro Allen, the Commissioner for Gender and Sexuality. There will also be a panel discussion including partner organisations and others well-placed to speak to developing shared vision of ending all forms of family violence.
The Pride in Prevention Evidence Guide (PDF, 6.6MB) is now available to download in advance of the launch.
We will be holding the launch over Zoom, given COVID-19 restrictions. We encourage early registration as spots are limited. We hope you can join us!
