The Macedon Ranges Shire Council will share in almost $3 million to prevent family violence and all forms of violence against women.

The Allan Labor Government today announced councils around the state will deliver a range of initiatives as part of the Free from Violence Local Government Program 2024-27.  

The councils will deliver programs and activities that will help people in the community understand the role they can play to make their community safer.  

As large employers with unique connections tot heir local communities, councils are well placed to support communities to both prevent family violence and stop violence against women.  

This is the second round of the program, which is already supporting 15 councils to carry out primary prevention initiatives in their local area.  

These grants are an important part of the Labor Government’s nation-leading work to end family violence.
