Pride in Prevention Evidence Guide

Rainbow Health Victoria is proud to announce the launch of Pride in Prevention: A guide to primary prevention of family violence experienced by LGBTIQ communities.

The Pride in Prevention Evidence Guide [PDF, 6.6MB] is now available to download.

This guide has been produced by the LGBTIQ Family Violence Prevention Project 2019-2021, a ground-breaking initiative led by Rainbow Health Victoria and funded by the Office for Women in the Victorian Department of Premier and Cabinet.

This project forges new ground in the primary prevention of family violence experienced by LGBTIQ communities, seeking to address critical evidence gaps, strengthen understanding of the drivers of violence, and build expertise for both LGBTIQ organisations and family violence primary prevention organisations to effectively deliver evidence-based programs.

Pride in Prevention summarises the current available evidence on the drivers of family violence experienced by LGBTIQ communities and provides recommendations for priority interventions to address it. The guide will underpin the work of several pilot primary prevention activities to be co-developed and delivered as part of the next phase of this project.

An online launch, opened by Gabrielle Williams, Minister for Prevention of Family Violence, and Ro Allen, the Commissioner for Gender and Sexuality, will be held on Wednesday 1 July, at 1pm, via Zoom. Register for the event via eventbrite.

There will also be a panel discussion, including partner organisations, and others well-placed to speak to developing shared vision of ending all forms of family violence.
