Safe Relationships Seminars

January 21, 2016 10:57 pm

Join Rural Women New Zealand branches for the final seminars in the Safe Relationships series.

The purpose of the seminars is to increase awareness and education to stop domestic violence in rural communities.

Lesley Elliott MNZM will be the guest speaker and the event will include discussion about what makes a safe relationship.

Lesley established the Sophie Elliott Foundation after the tragic death of her daughter, Sophie by her former boyfriend. Lesley says, “I applaud this initiative by Rural Women New Zealand and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to talk to rural groups. Domestic violence isn’t a problem just in towns and cities, every community and socio-economic group throughout the country is affected.

The Lotteries Community Fund is supporting the seminars with a commitment by Rural Women New Zealand members to safe relations and safe communities.
