Family Violence


Healesville Women 4 Women (HW4W)

The best neighbours are the ones that double as your partners in Gender Equity action.

The Healesville Women 4 Women project came out of the local Change the Story network and is a partnership of local organisations and community volunteers lead by Eastern Community Legal Centre (ECLC). Partner organisations include Yarra Ranges Council, HICSA, Eastern Health,HICCI,EACH, Uniting Vic Tas, Healesville Living & Learning Centre, Anchor, Healesville Uniting Church, Healesville Fitness Centre and Carrington Health.

The project delivered an International Women's Day event in 2018, to connect and empower women living and working in Healesville. Isolation, stigma and a lack of awareness of family violence services can affect victims/survivor's support seeking behaviours. This event engaged over 100 women and delivered gender equality messaging and community building activities, uniting women through shared personal experiences and visions for the future.
