What is a regional family violence prevention network?

Local committees or networks are made up of partners from both government and non-government agencies who come together to work on violence prevention initiatives within their community.  They share interest, leadership, and willingness to rally around providing integrated and coordinated services to the women who come to them for services. While the Provincial Partnerships in Action forum  works at the provincial level towards a comprehensive New Brunswick–wide response to the issue of violence against women, the work of local networks allows for regional diversity.  In this way, community responses can be tailored to the distinct realities of each community.  Communities considering forming a local violence prevention committee should contact the Women’s Equality Branch – Violence Prevention Initiatives for more information.

A Regional Violence Prevention Network includes:

  • A membership that reflects all aspects of the service and support network, including government services, community agencies, and members of the community (including survivors).
  • A clearly defined purpose and mandate with realistic goals and objectives relevant to their region.
  • A commitment to work together to address barriers and overcome challenges.
  • An administrative structure that lends itself to their needs.  The functioning of the committee, such as, selecting the chair, the frequency and location of meetings, sub-committee structures is decided by the members of the network.
