Our weekly round up is now back after a hiatus over the seasonal holidays and we are looking forward to continuing to bring to you the latest Australian and global information on policy, advocacy, research, and events on the prevention and elimination of violence against women and their children.

AWAVA would like to clarify an item which appeared in the 20 December, 2013 edition of the Weekly Round-Up.

The Lookout, which was newly launched in 2013, is a joint project developed by the Domestic Violence Resource Centre Victoria (DVRCV) and Domestic Violence Victoria (DV Vic). DVRCV is the lead agency for this exciting project.
