“Breaking the Cycle” - Conference for anti-violence workers

Dr David Smyth, chair of Rotary-backed Violence Free Families (Vic) and ex-director, Rotary Club of Brighton, is among the speakers at Akolade’s 2nd“Breaking the Cycle” conference from September 27-29 at Crowne Plaza, Melbourne.

The conference focuses on how not-for-profits in this field can deliver their services efficiently. States have committed large sums (Vic, $527m; NSW,  $300m) to combat domestic and family violence.  Front-line agencies  need to tap the new funding, scale up, diversify, and innovate. The 20-plus speakers on  best practices are from as far afield as Break the Cycle units, Los Angeles and Minnesota.

Registrations at Akolade 02 9247 6000, akolade.com.au or registration@akolade.com.au. Rotary 10% discount via VIP Code WFXV1.
