Parramatta Cumberland Family and Domestic Violence Prevention Committee
Cumberland Women’s Health Centre convenes the Parramatta Cumberland Family and Domestic Violence Committee. This committee meets bi monthly at our centre and its activities are Domestic Violence Prevention orientated. We work in partnership with other local agencies addressing issues which have been identified through local consultations therefore being relevant and effective. We would like to make the Committees activities even more relevant. We value Government and Non-Government agencies, as well as local services, churches and community groups. Our Committee is always open and we encourage new agencies to come along and be represented and contribute towards these projects. Domestic Violence is a factor in 80% of cases we deal with and we need to work more closely together to address this huge issue in our community. We can do this by raising awareness, building on community strengths, collaborating in joint projects as well as increase our building on our learnings and expertise.
