NameROTARY SAFE FAMILIES PROGRAM
Project NameROTARY SAFE FAMILIES PROGRAM
The ChalengeChallenge is for Rotarians to understand and acknowledge that family violence and elder abuse is occurring daily across all neighbourhoods and country. For Rotarians to take some responsibility and become informed and able to identify this abuse and know how to refer and get support for the abused.
The SolutionRotary Safe Families Program includes two films: Family Violence, Impact on Children, and Elder Abuse. If every Rotarian via their club meeting or privately, viewed these films containing powerful messages on identifying, being informed and how to find appropriate referral for a victim, they would assist in PREVENTION of abuse. Films, Manual and Toolkit supported by Police, Support Organisations, and Government. Let's take some responsibility and be informed how to make a difference.
