THE Patricia Giles Centre for Non-Violence provides a range of services and programs for families impacted by family and domestic violence.

See it, Say it! is a new awareness workshop for primary prevention of family domestic violence specifically created for workplaces.

The program will be available to businesses in the cities of Joondalup and Wanneroo educating organisations about bystander training.

This new training program developed by Patricia Giles Centre for Non-Violence and funded by the Department of Communities is designed to empower employees to be effective bystanders, by recognising, responding to and preventing possibly harmful situations from occurring.

The program will cover a variety of topics such as overcoming bystander barriers and effective communication techniques to enable an organisation to lead the way through a gendered lens to prevent violence in our community.

Chief executive officer Debbie Cameron said everyone has a role to play in creating a safe and respectful workplace.

“Primary prevention is a key to creating a positive workplace culture and providing employees with the skills and knowledge to intervene early and effectively, we can create a workplace where everyone feels supported and respected,” she said.

The Patricia Giles Centre for Non-Violence will be holding a free community consultation morning tea on Wednesday, May 3 from 10am to 11am upstairs at 115 Collective Café, 869 Connolly Dr, Merriwa.

If your business would like to attend the consultation email seeitsayit@pgcnv.org.au by Saturday, April 29.
