Five awards and three accolades were given tonight to commend the important work of several organisations in the fight to prevent violence against women at tonight’s Partners in Prevention Awards.
“The ACT Partners in Prevention Awards recognise the contribution of best practice in strategies, programs and activities that create awareness of gendered violence,” Minister for Women Joy Burch said.
