The Macedon Ranges Family Violence Network is a subgroup of the Macedon Ranges Local Safety Committee. Represented on the network is Macedon Ranges Shire Council, Cobaw, Macedon Ranges Health, Kyneton District Health, Centre for Non-violence, Police, Zonta, Anglicare Australia and Aftercare. CVPCP is proud to support this network and the work that stretches from primary prevention to improving response to family violence.
Behind closed doors project
As part the Macedon Ranges Family Violence action plan to raise awareness of family violence specialist services, they have developed a poster that supports women, in the Macedon Ranges, to identify family violence and where they can get help. These posters are currently being fixed onto the back of doors in all the women’s public toilets – over 50 toilet blocks across the Macedon Ranges.
We would like to thank Zonta for funding the printing of these posters, Centre for Non-Violence for assisting with the development of the poster and the Macedon Ranges Shire Council for allowing these posters to be displayed within the council buildings. We would also like to thank Macedon Ranges Health and the Macedon Ranges Maternal & Child Health Services for assisting with the distribution of these posters.
