Safe Relationship Seminars Applauded
15 June 2015
Rural Women New Zealand is partnering with the Sophie Elliott Foundation and the It’s Not Ok campaign to present a series of Safe Relationships seminars.
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 first of several free RWNZ hosted seminars will be at Maungaturoto in Northland on Wednesday 24 June. It will include speakers and discussion, it is an open event and all are welcome to attend.
The Lotteries Community Fund is supporting the seminars with a commitment by Rural Women New Zealand members to safe relations and safe communities.
