North Shore Family Violence Prevention Network
The North Shore Family Violence Prevention Network is an open collaborative of individuals and agencies that advocate for Family Violence Prevention initiatives within the wider North Shore Community. Members represent both NGO and government organizations and cross sector collaboration, coordination, cooperation and communication are the purpose and goal of the work in which we are involved.
The Network’s role is to:
Ensure that government and community agencies share resources, work together to reduce service fragmentation, and improve their capability to provide quality effective family violence services.
Facilitate an increased community understanding, ownership and leadership of family violence prevention, with improved efforts to change the attitudes and behaviours that perpetuate family violence.
Our vision is to strengthen the network to become agents of social change. To engage with those outside the specialist family violence sector — the wider community, business, education and the health sector.
“Multi-Agency collaboration makes the best use of limited resources and thus aligns with increasing calls for social service provision to become more efficient by being more effective.” (Bartlett, 2009)
