Together for Equality & Respect is a four year strategy aimed at preventing violence against women in Melbourne’s East 2013-17. The Strategy provides partner organisations with the opportunity to work together to prioritise, coordinate and integrate our efforts to prevent men’s violence against women across the Eastern Metropolitan Region of Melbourne.
All seven Local Governments and all eight Community Health Services, both Primary Care Partnerships, both Medicare Locals and the Regional Family Violence Partnership have all been actively involved in the consultation and/or development of this Strategy. These partners together created a powerful vision, articulating what they believe this Strategy can contribute to our vision for:
A society where women live free from men’s violence – where every girl and boy grows up to be equally valued, heard and respected, and with equal access to opportunities.
