Southern Mallee PCP Buloke Family Violence Prevention Project
Southern Mallee PCP welcomed State Government funding of $140,000 towards family violence prevention in the Buloke Shire. The aim of the project is to create an equal and respectful Buloke community, free from violence. The Southern Mallee PCP Buloke Strategic Health and Wellbeing Partnership (Buloke Shire Council, East Wimmera Health Service, Mallee Track Health and Community Service and SMPCP) will co-design with the Buloke community, family violence prevention strategies and interventions using localised evidence to inform a prevention Action Plan. The Action Plan will drive change with the community, focusing on gender equality and the primary prevention of family violence. The Project Working Group will be established, who will be responsible for developing and implementing the localised Action Plan, engaging the community in the project and promoting key messages across Buloke. The project will have a strong prevention focus that will enable the community to build their inclusiveness and resilience.
