In partnership with SBS Filipino and Intouch Multicultural Centre Against Family Violence, the Australian Filipino Community Services (AFCS) led a community discussion on preventing family violence.

Increased awareness and understanding the signs of violence occurring in the first instance is a strategy we could apply to prevent family violence according to Dina Delfino, Community Counsellor.

It was highlighted that emotional abuse is difficult to report or to talk about and prevalent in relationships. There is a need to discuss this topic. Other forms of abuse are physical, mental, financial and social including religious.

Gerry Ocampo, White Ribbon Ambassador for the Filipino Community shared that “men need information and awareness on prevention of violence, raising sons to respect women and raising daughters knowing that they deserve respect at all times.”

Intouch Chairperson Faye Spiteri shared the support services for women through Intouch Multicultural Family Violence Prevention Centre.

The discussion was facilitated by Maridel Andanar, SBS Filipino.
