Primary Prevention – Projects

Respect Starts Here

Respect Starts Here is a program that supports gender equality, promotes respect in our community and contributes to the prevention of violence against women.

We are currently funded to deliver Respect Starts Here in sporting clubs across Barwon, thanks to Sport and Recreation Victoria and Geelong Community Foundation.

Registrations are now open for Football and Netball clubs across the Barwon area to be part of Respect Starts Here in 2024. For more information and to register visit Respect Starts Here.

Lived Experience Art Exhibition

This program explores the underlying causes of violence against women and invites clients to reflect and express concepts such as respect, independence, power, and cultural rules around femininity and masculinity through art in a facilitated workshop setting. The artwork that is produced is exhibited to the public at an accessible venue and shared on social media and other publications.

The Sexual Assault & Family Violence Centre acknowledges the traditional owners and custodians of the land we stand on. We are committed to working toward creating a community where all people indigenous and non-indigenous are safe, connected and empowered to live well. The Sexual Assault & Family Violence Centre recognises the diverse needs of our community and we ensure our services are inclusive of all children, young people and their families including those who are of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander descent, from culturally and/or linguistically diverse backgrounds, those who identify as LGBTIQ and persons living with disability. We work collaboratively with people and partner organisations who also support our diverse client group. Interpreter and translator services are available to all our clients upon request.
