 A public forum has been called to help inform Casey Council’s family violence action plan.
The event is a fore-runner to the council’s draft three-year Family Violence Prevention Strategy and Action Plan.
It includes a keynote address by Women’s Health in the South East chief executive Kit McMahon and a discussion on the strategy.
Family violence has been a long standing public safety issue, with more than 4700 incidents in Casey reported to police in 2016-17.
More than 3300 residents applied for family violence intervention orders in the same period.
Mayor Geoff Ablett said the council wanted to hear “first hand” what the community wanted from Casey to help reduce family violence.
“As a council we have committed to working towards ensuring that Casey is a family-friendly city, where everyone feels safe in their homes, neighbourhoods, public spaces and on public transport.
“This strategy and action plan are key documents that will enable us to work towards delivering on this for our community.”
The event is at Bunjil Place function room, Patrick Northeast Drive, Narre Warren on Thursday, 8 March, 11am-2.30pm. Lunch and free childcare provided.
