Family Violence


Together For Equality & Respect (TFER) Partnership

Together for Equality & Respect (TFER) is a partnership with a shared commitment to coordinate and integrate efforts to prevent men’s violence against women across the Eastern Metropolitan Region (EMR).

The cross sector partnership includes more than 30 organisations across the seven local government areas in Melbourne’s east.

TFER provides sustained opportunities to build intersectional practice, collaborate, share skills, knowledge and resources, avoid duplication and strengthen the capacity of the EMR to enable gender equality and equal and respectful relationships between women and men.
