Family Violence Prevention Yarns Now Open

Staff at Bendigo District Aboriginal Co-operative are seeking expressions of interest from community members about how to design and develop a localised approach to preventing family violence within the  Aboriginal community.

The aim is to create a culturally safe and responsive approach to family violence prevention that is guided and informed by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander voices.
