Advancing primary prevention of violence against women.

Leadership. Education. Expertise.

Preventing Violence Together is a Western Australian-based initiative aspiring to end violence against women and children through primary prevention.

Primary prevention focuses on shifting the culture that permits violence to occur in the first place by identifying and challenging the social norms, practices and structures that drive violence against women.   

Preventing Violence Together works to build the capacity of local communities, state agencies and organisations, government and the private sector to develop, implement and evaluate effective primary prevention activities.

Preventing Violence Together is about fostering the primary prevention sector that is developing in our state by supporting shared approaches, consistent practice and confident professionals undertaking primary prevention of violence against women throughout WA.
