The Community, Respect and Equality member, WA Centre for Rural Health is very pleased that Our WATCh has chosen Geraldton as the final location to pilot their bystander training for primary prevention of violence against women.

The training, which has not been offered anywhere else in Western Australia, will enable attendees to understand, practice and promote good-practice bystander approaches in their workplace or community organisation.

The training will be delivered over two half days:

  • 1 pm – 5 pm Wednesday 12 June (afternoon tea provided) 
  • 9 am – 1 pm Thursday 13 June (morning tea and lunch provided)

The first half-day will cover foundational knowledge on violence against women; gendered drivers of family violence; intersectionality; the ecological model and key conceptual framework of bystander action. On the second half-day, participants will spend time developing practical bystander actions & building conditions for change.

Venue: WA Centre for Rural Health, Multipurpose Room, 167 Fitzgerald Street, Geraldton

The training is being offered to people who have had some involvement in or exposure to the Community Respect and Equality initiatives, including the CRE Agreement, and are interested in developing bystander activities in their workplace or community organisation.

Please remember that space is limited so register your or your organisation’s interest early. Priority will be given to those organisations and people who have already engaged with the Community, Respect and Equality project.
