    The Anglican Diocese of Melbourne has clear strengths that make it an effective setting for embedding prevention of violence against women (PVAW) strategies. Interviewee responses and the range of primary prevention activities reported show that Anglican leaders are proactive in promoting PVAW messages, though most do not directly address the cultural mores that support its occurrence. Ultimately, PVAW is about breaking down systemic and cultural imbalances that foster inequality and violence and supporting individuals as they learn how to have healthy, equal relationships. The report also highlights lessons learned in the implementation of the pilot and offers recommendations to progress the project in an Anglican setting.

    This report was commissioned by the Anglican Diocese of Melbourne and funded by Anglicare Victoria and the Victorian Health Promotion Foundation (VicHealth).
