Safe at Home, Safe at Work
6 November  6:00pm
Ludo McFerran from the Australian Domestic and Family Violence Clearinghouse’s Safe at Home, Safe at Work project is visiting New Zealand in November 2012. She will speak at a public forum on domestic violence and the workplace in Auckland on Tuesday 6 November, 6-8pm. The highly successful ‘Safe at Home, Safe at Work’ project promotes the introduction of domestic violence clauses in industrial instruments with unions and employers.
Research shows that women who experience domestic violence have a more disrupted work history, are on lower personal incomes, have had to change jobs frequently and are more likely to be employed in casual and part time work than women with no experience of violence. Supporting women to maintain employment is critical to maintaining or attaining economic independence. More than 650,000 employees in Australia are now protected by access to domestic violence clauses.
After Ludo’s presentation, Holly Carrington (Shine’s DVFREE project) and the It’s Not OK campaign team will present on some of the work done in this area in New Zealand.

Raglan Community Anti Violence Campaign

On 17th October 2012 we will be holding a community meeting in the Raglan Town Hall to discuss the issue of violence in our community, especially family violence.  At this stage a wide cross section of the community have committed to being at this meeting including police, school leaders, counsellors, health providers, church groups etc.  From this meeting, a small working group will be formed to coordinate a range of activities, projects and strategies aimed at reducing the incidence of violence in our community. White Ribbon Day in November will be a perfect opportunity to launch our anti violence campaign which we see as being an ongoing campaign to raise awareness of the issue and generate a change in culture so that violence is no longer accepted  as a way of addressing challenging situations.  We hope that every event held in Raglan in 2012-2013 will carry the anti-violence message and will invite event organisers to help us in the ongoing education of our community.
