Bi-monthly email bulletins provide information, resources, news and details of upcoming events relating to respectful relationships education.

After a few months in my new job, I felt how enormous this area was and that maybe I wasn’t the right person. Then I attended a PiP meeting and I was amazed and delighted at this seemly underground movement of dedication, diversity and information that was strong, credible and extensive. And yes it was collegial and connective!!
In 2011, PiP completed a thorough impact evaluation. The findings of the evaluation clearly indicate that the PiP project has been successful in building the professional capacity of the youth-focused primary prevention of violence against women sector in Victoria and fostering a community of practice around this work.
