Gambling Prevention

In partnership with Connect Health and Community, SECL is working in a co-design process with Afghan, Burmese and Vietnamese communities to design and implement a primary prevention strategy that reduces the level of gambling related harm occurring in culturally diverse communities living in the City of Greater Dandenong. These communities are currently developing a range of culturally appropriate flyers, brochures, forums and videos that will be promoted into the community with ownership of these prevention strategies transitioned across to ethno-specific community associations and members.

    Explores gender equality and the attitudes, beliefs and behaviours that lead to family violence Empowers community members with greater knowledge and confidence to be active bystanders within their community, and Develops culturally appropriate and meaningful prevention initiatives that create positive change in people’s lives by preventing family violence before it occurs
