Provincial Partnerships in Action
A forum for regional family violence networks
The Provincial Partnerships in Action (PPA) forum brings representatives from Regional Violence Prevention Networks together annually for training, skills development, networking, information sharing on best practices, and how to evolve a provincial response for the provision of core services to women who have experienced domestic or other forms of violence and their families. Representatives can include domestic violence outreach workers, transition houses, second stage housing, community agencies offering other support services, community members including survivors of violence against women, and government partners.
The Women’s Equality Branch – Violence Prevention Unit facilitates sessions once a year.
It is based on the recognition that meeting the needs of women experiencing violence in personal relationships requires collaboration and information-sharing between provincial partners. It provides a formal mechanism for sharing ideas of service delivery concepts that may be shared and adopted. Regional diversity, community involvement and energy, champions and leadership, creativity and availability of resources create opportunities for processes to evolve around problem solving and learning from the experiences of others.
Each partner is a part of the overall provincial strategy. Community services for women who are victims of violence can be made stronger by having representatives actively participate in a Regional Violence Prevention Network where the provision of supports and services can be looked at holistically, assuring some level of consistent core services being provided everywhere in the province.
