OUR HUME FAMILY AND DOMESTIC VIOLENCE NETWORK

Northern Community Legal Centre convenes the Hume Domestic and Family Violence Network. The Network was formed in 1992 and its membership is drawn from family violence service providers and government agencies working within the City of Hume. The purpose of the network is to coordinate a partnership response to family violence and to promote gender equality within the Hume community.

The Hume Domestic and Family Violence Network coordinates local events for Week Without Violence and is involved in awareness raising events held during 16 Days of Activism, White Ribbon Day and International Women’s Day.

The Hume Domestic and Family Violence Network meets on the first Monday of every month from 1 – 3:30pm at the Broadmeadows Magistrate’s Court.

Week Without Violence (WWV) is a global campaign to end violence against women. The campaign occurs in the third week of October, each year. Since 1999, the northern metropolitan region has had a proud history of participation in WWV, primarily through the Clothesline Project, which focuses on raising awareness about family violence. For the 20th Anniversary of the Week Without Violence, we participated in video showcasing the work we do within the region.
