The Canterbury-Bankstown Domestic Violence Liaison Committee provides direct and indirect support to families experiencing, or at risk of experiencing, domestic violence.
The Committee is comprised of non-government, government and other community organisations. Meetings are an opportunity to share information about specific services, network with others working in the area of domestic violence, discuss domestic violence trends, community education, and also discuss ways to raise awareness about the impact of domestic violence on the lives of women and children. The committee is also involved in a number of community-based awareness campaigns such as White Ribbon Day, and most recently, the ‘Canterbury-Bankstown Says NO to Domestic Violence’ campaign, launched on International Women’s Day.
The Canterbury-Bankstown Domestic Violence Liaison Committee is a closed committee and those willing to join or attend a meeting must first contact Dr. Pota Forrest-Lawrence, community safety and crime prevention officer with Canterbury-Bankstown Council, on 9707 9471, for further information.
