Weaving the net



Weaving the net is a series of consultative, educational and community development modules that aim to increase capacity in Aboriginal communities to respond to child abuse. The program is offered to Aboriginal communities wanting to promote community and family-based solutions to child abuse and family violence. A key outcome is to develop a pool of accredited workers and community members who could facilitate education and community development programs.

Weaving the net consists of a 2-day consultation process followed by training on child sexual assault, physical and emotional abuse and neglect of children and child protection in the context of family violence. The community education module is followed by a community-building module to further develop a child protection community plan. Aboriginal communities are welcome to request Weaving the net from the Education Centre Against Violence. While there are some costs associated with the program delivery this can be negotiated if cost is a serious impediment to program delivery.
