This workshop, networking and connecting event is for NSW local government officers.
 
It will build understanding of the national approach to preventing violence against women and their children: Our Watch's Change the Story. This is a great opportunity for NSW local government officers who are working in their communities to prevent violence against women and their children:
 
  • How do we know that our work to prevent violence against women is effective?
  • Why do we implement the programs that we do?
  • What do we do after we've raised awareness, distributed service referral information and taken action to challenge the condoning of violence against women?
  • What's next?
This workshop will:
 
  •     Build our understanding of why we need a sound framework to inform our work to prevent violence against women and their children
  •     Build our understanding of the Change the Story framework including how we can implement it in our work- with examples and case studies
  •     Be a great networking and connecting opportunity with others working in local government to prevent violence.
By City of Parramatta, LGNSW and Our Watch.
