Preventing Violence Against Women

“Beechworth Health Service is committed to the promotion of respectful relationships, gender equality and the demonstration of a culture of zero tolerance of violence against women.”

- Statement from the CEO

At Beechworth Health Service we recognise that family violence across the life span is a complex and serious community issue. It has both immediate and long-term impacts on the physical, psychological and social health and wellbeing of those affected. Any form of family violence is unacceptable.

Mutual respect and trust are the core values of our health service. We are committed to breaking the silence around family violence in our community. Our commitment is to reduce the incidence of family violence and its impact on individuals, families, the community and the health system.
