As part of the N&WMR Identifying and Responding to Family Violence Project, the North and Western Metro Region PCPs will be delivering family violence training in partnership with Women’s Health in the North and Women’s Health West between May-September 2017.  An EOI was sent out to the NWMR PCP members and a large number of agencies expressed an interest in attendance. The training is targeted at managers, team leaders and HR staff, and will focus on identifying and responding to family violence, supporting clients who are experiencing family violence, and implementing the Client and Workplace Family Violence Policies that have been developed as part of the project. A tailored and targeted training session will also be delivered for HR staff, which will focus on responding to and supporting staff who are experiencing family violence.

Implementation Committee
Members of the Implementation Committee will receive support from the North West PCPs in tailoring the Client and Workplace Family Violence Policies to their agency, as well as collegial support via the Implementation Committee meetings.
