Learning together: Strengthening approaches to prevention through Communities of Practice

Communities of practice are emerging as a successful and sought-after mechanism to improve the wellbeing of workers, organisations and the prevention sector.

Communities of Practices play a key role in supporting practitioner wellbeing by fostering a sense of safety, support and collegiality among members, significantly boosting morale and reducing isolation.

Combined with other information sharing and capability building activities, Communities of Practice have a sector-wide impact that contributes to the prevention of family violence and all forms of violence against women.

This paper outlines the evidence-based benefits of DVRCV’s Communities of Practice model, and proposes that further investment through funding, time and resources will help the primary prevention sector to thrive.
