Pride in Prevention Partnership Guide: A guide for partnerships to support primary prevention of family violence experienced by LGBTIQ communities
This guide has been produced by the LGBTIQ Family Violence Prevention Project 2022-2024, a ground-breaking initiative led by Rainbow Health Australia and funded by the Office for Prevention of Family Violence and Coordination in the Victorian Department of Premier and Cabinet.
This guide builds on Pride in Prevention: a guide to primary prevention of family violence experienced by LGBTIQ communities, which draws together existing research and policy frameworks, and puts forward a new conceptual model for understanding LGBTIQ experiences of family violence, along with priority actions for primary prevention.
It also follows the Pride in Prevention Messaging Guide: A guide for communications and engagement to support primary prevention of family violence experienced by LGBTIQ communities, which supports organisations and practitioners in developing effective and appropriate family violence prevention messaging, and delivering this through public campaigns, social media communications and policy work.
Relationships between LGBTIQ organisations and family violence service organisations in Australia are growing. The guide is intended to inform the development of future partnerships across these sectors, as many of the issues encountered and the approaches required to build effective collaborations will be similar.
The new guide provides additional support to build the expertise and capacity of both LGBTIQ practitioners and organisations, and family violence prevention practitioners and organisations, in the design and delivery of primary prevention of family violence experienced by LGBTIQ communities.
The guide draws on existing partnership knowledge from within and beyond the primary prevention sector, as well as being informed by the learnings of a unique primary prevention partnership process between Rainbow Health Australia and Safe and Equal.
