This report looks at how local councils are addressing family violence in their communities.

This report has been published by Australia's National Research Organisation for Women's Safety (ANROWS).

The report is intended for DFV prevention practitioners in local government and other community services. It presents examples of how local councils are using action research and the draft 'Local council domestic and family violence prevention toolkit' to develop prevention programs:

  • Case study 1 – City of Charles Sturt
    Shows the use of arts projects as an entry point to engagement around domestic and family violence prevention
  • Case study 2 – City of Latrobe
    Looks at community partnerships as a vehicle for raising awareness
  • Case study 3 – Mackay Regional Council
    Explores partnering with an external training organisation to deliver domestic and family violence awareness and bystander training for managers and executives
  • Case study 4 – City of Mandurah
    Investigates working across the council organisation to maximise the response rate for a gender attitude survey
  • Case study 5 – City of Parramatta
    Explains a gender audit of a performing arts program.
